Members Of Arcade Fire, The Strokes, Bon Iver To Play Basketball For Charity

Win Butler never met a Canadian celebrity basketball game he didn’t want to take part in, and next month, he’ll share the court with some fellow indie rock heavy hitters at this year’s Pop Vs. Jock charity game. The game is an annual part of the Pop Montreal festival, and both Win and Will Butler… More »

Au Revoir Simone – “Fade Into You” (Feat Nikolai Fraiture) (Mazzy Star Cover)

Mazzy Star’s “Fade Into You” remains one of the iconic songs of the ’90s, and now Au Revoir Simone have taken on the task of covering it. Though they’ve included the song in live sets, the synth-pop trio went into the studio to record this version, and they brought along a little help: Nikolai Fraiture… More »

The 10 Best Sets At Governors Ball 2014

I recognize this is an issue of taste, but Governors Ball 2014 was a little bit of a mixed bag for me. There were two headliners I loved, and they conflicted, and I had no interest in the subsequent four on Saturday and Sunday. After being impressed and surprised repeatedly on Friday, I had a… More »

Watch The Strokes Perform Comedown Machine Songs Live For The First Time In Port Chester

The Strokes had their first concert in three years last night in Port Chester, NY and played three songs from 2013’s Comedown Machine, which they didn’t tour behind. The show served as a warm-up performance for their headlining performance at next weekend’s Governors Ball. Julian Casablancas was also back in form following his crappy SXSWMore »

The Strokes Announce NY Show Before Governors Ball

Between Albert Hammond doing “One Way Trigger” and Julian Casablancas doing “Take It Or Leave It,” there have been more live covers of Strokes songs by members of the Strokes than there has been actual Strokes news of late. But today, the Strokes announced a show that will act as a warm-up for their performance… More »

Total Warr – “Is This It” (The Strokes Cover)

French psych-pop duo and BTW alumni Total Warr have served up a cover of “Is This It,” the title track from the Strokes’ classic 2001 debut album. It’s a very pretty synth-based rendering of the song, and they apparently did it just for kicks, as explained on SoundCloud:… More »

Watch Albert Hammond Jr. Play The Strokes’ “One Way Trigger” In Newcastle

When the Strokes revealed Comedown Machine single “One Way Trigger” last year, Tom noted that the song features “a particularly ornery Albert Hammond, Jr. solo.” If that didn’t already qualify as Hammond putting his personal stamp on the tune, last night’s solo gig in Newcastle probably did the trick; Hammond performed “One Way Trigger” live… More »

Famous Album Cover Art Imagined From A Different Perspective

Have you ever wondered what famous album covers might look like from a different perspective? A user on Flickr by the name of Harvezt has worked to answer that question with a new series called The Dark Side Of The Cover.

Watch Julian Casablancas Play “Take It Or Leave It” In Chile

Julian Casablancas’s recent live shows with his new backing band the Voidz have been, by most accounts, an absolute godawful nightmare. (I saw him at SXSW, and yeesh.) This past weekend, he played at a club in Santiago, Chile as a sideshow to the Lollapalooza Chile festival, and it’s not like those reports are getting… More »

Watch The Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Album Trailer

Given that his name popped up on a number of festival bills, we’d been anticipating a new Julian Casablancas solo joint this year, and it looks like that wish is coming true. The Strokes frontman released a trailer for a new album credited to Julian Casablancas + the Voidz, which seems to suggest he’s playing… More »

Governors Ball 2014 Lineup

We already knew that OutKast would headline this summer’s Governors Ball festival in New York; it followed Coachella as the second reunion show that the legendary duo had announced. But the rest of the lineup for Governors Ball, which comes to New York City’s Randall’s Island 6/6-8, is online now; as Idolator points out, it… More »

Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Determining the year’s best albums is, admittedly, a subjective pursuit. But even more than an albums roundup, a list of songs is an intensely personal way to sum up a year in music. It is a process of appreciating the trees in a forest so sprawling it can never be mapped out entirely, celebrating the… More »

Albert Hammond Jr. – “St. Justice” Video (NSFW)

Earlier this week, Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. released his solo EP AHJ, and now he’s got a video for the rippling early single “St. Justice.” Director Laurent Briet’s elegant black-and-white clip tells the story of a relationship coming together and falling apart, as it follows Hammond spending time with a ladyfriend who is apparently… More »

Albert Hammond Jr – “Rude Customer”

Albert Hammond Jr has been clean and sober for four years, but the Strokes guitarist just recently opened up to the general public about his struggles with addiction, so his upcoming AHJ EP feels a little like a comeback vehicle (as opposed to a Comedown Machine). And wouldn’t you know it, lead single “Rude Customer”… More »

Albert Hammond, Jr. Details Drug Addiction In NME

Albert Hammond, Jr., the Strokes guitarist and occasional solo artist, has been in and out of the spotlight over the last decade-plus. From an outside perspective, the volatile nature of the Strokes themselves has had something to do with it. But apparently, that’s not all. And now Hammond has opened up about the dangerous and… More »

HAIM – “I’ll Try Anything Once” (Strokes Cover)

HAIM played on Sirius XMU last month. During the session they covered The Strokes’ “I’ll Try Anything Once” — an early version of “You Only Live Once” that was released as a B-side in the UK in March 2006. Check it out below, and in case you missed it, check out our Band To WatchMore »

The 10 Best Strokes Songs

New Yorkers like to think of New York as the center of the universe, or at least the center of gravity where cool is concerned. And, dammit, no matter how thoroughly and vigorously landlocked dolts like me detail the cultural contributions of our home turf, there’s really no denying the wealth of music that ha… More »

On Record Store Day (4/20), the Strokes will release a 7-inch for their recent single “All The Time.” It’s from their new album, Comedown Machine, officially out on the 26th.
