Watch Julian Casablancas + The Voidz On Le Grand Journal

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz released Tyranny back in September. It's an ambitious album -- a careening mess of ideas that result in a very loud, very weird transition from The Strokes' most recent record, Comedown Machine. Casablancas and company performed "Where No Eagles Fly" and "Dare I Care" on the French talk show LeMore »

Julian Casablancas Criticizes iTunes, Wants Strokes’ 6th Album On His Label

Last year, the Strokes released their Comedown Machine album, and it's set to be the last album under their deal with RCA. But the Strokes aren't done making new music; they apparently have plans to record early next year.

Julian Casablancas Is Building A Folding Bicycle And Is Confident There Is No Extraterrestrial Life

Julian Casablancas is kind of the anti-Taylor Swift, isn't he? She just moved to Tribeca -- making her neighbors with, like, Jay Z, Beyoncé, and Blue Ivy -- and is so stoked on it that she's Instagramming pictures of lattés and serving as NYC's Global Welcome Ambassador for tourism. He just moved out of the… More »

Whatever you want to call this ongoing hubbub about Julian Casablancas and his disdain for New York City brunch crowds and/or hotshot GQ reporters -- Brunchgate? Brunchghazi? -- consider today's tweets the Strokes and Voidz frontman's last words on the matter. In a Twitter rant just now, he gave his definitive take on brunch a… More »

Julian Casablancas Blasts GQ Writer Who Made Him Seem Anti-Brunch

Last month, my friend Zach Baron wrote what I thought was a warm and empathetic GQ profile of Julian Casablancas, whose album Tyranny was about to come out. In the story, after some prodding, Casablancas talked a bit about why he'd moved out of New York City, offering this: "I don't know how many, like,… More »

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz played "Human Sadness" live for the first time at his secret album release show at Brooklyn's Shea Stadium that took place last Monday night.

Watch Julian Casablancas + The Voidz’ Very Strange Tonight Show Performance

Yesterday, Julian Casablancas released the self-consciously wacky and all-over-the-place Tyranny, his first album with his new backing band the Voidz. And they marked the occasion by performing their gurgling-circus-music single "Where No Eagles Fly" on The Tonight Show. Casablancas wore a too-big denim vest with no shirt on underneath, and he kissed Fallon's hand instead… More »

Julian Casablancas & Blood Orange Played A Secret Show In Brooklyn Last Night

If you've never lived in New York, you may have never experienced the whole secret-show rush: You find out about a famous band playing in some way-too-small club tonight, you freak out, you rush to the venue, you pull every string available to get in, and you either make it through the crush at the… More »

Stream Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Tyranny

Julian Casablancas has been working on Tyranny, his solo album with new backing band the Voidz, for a while now, and the thing was a controversial discussion-subject before anyone even heard the thing. The album is a messy, ambitious splurge of ideas, one that careens haphazardly from one genre to the next and sounds basically… More »

Q&A: Julian Casablancas On His Weird New Album, Dysfunctional Democracy In The West, And The Future Of The Strokes

Tyranny -- either the second Julian Casablancas solo record after 2009's Phrazes For The Young or the debut album by Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, depending on how you want to look at it -- is a strange piece of work. A far cry from the bite-size chronicles of effortless New York cool that Casablanca… More »

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Making TV Debut On Fallon Next Week

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz will make their television debut on Fallon next week.

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz – “Where No Eagles Fly”

Last week, we heard the first single off Julian Casablancas + The Voidz' upcoming LP, Tyranny. That track, "Human Sadness," was 11 minutes of impressionistic, melodic drift. Today, BBC Radio 6 premiered another new Tyranny song, "Where No Eagles Fly," which feels quite a bit more tightly structured than "Human Sadness," but is still a… More »

Julian Casablancas + The Voidz – “Human Sadness”

Enough with the scraps and teases: Here's a full track from Tyranny, the first album by Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. Technically, Tyranny is the second record to bear Casablancas' name, following 2009's electrified jaunt Phrazes For The Young, but if "+ The Voidz" didn't sufficiently explain that this is a brand new project, thi… More »

Say Lou Lou – “Instant Crush” (Daft Punk Cover)

The Swedish/Australian pop duo Say Lou Lou recently linked up with space-disco wizard Lindstrøm to release a very good single called "Games For Girls." In most cases, this would be enough of an ambitiously progged-out dance-music connection for one pop duo. But Say Lou Lou are not most pop duo's and now they've solidified their… More »
