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… More »

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.

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 IdolatorMore »

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… 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… 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… 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 »

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 »

Premature Evaluation: The Strokes Comedown Machine

At SXSW, they give you all these bracelets everywhere you go -- indicating you've got clearance to enter different venues or VIP sections or whatever -- and you can't really take any of them off till the festival is over, so that by Saturday afternoon, everyone there has a half-sleeve of neon ribbons running… More »

Preview Every Track From The Strokes’ Comedown Machine

The Strokes' new album Comedown Machine is only a week away from release, but we've only heard two songs, "One Way Trigger" and "All The Time." Today, though, Amazon has clips of every track on the album, and experiencing the entire thing in 30-second samples in quick succession is a very,… More »

The Strokes – “All The Time” Video

The Strokes' new single "All The Time" sounds like an old Strokes song, with its urgently metronomic rhythm and its excellently rumpled Julian Casablancas mutter-wail. And the video seems bent on reminding us who, exactly, the Strokes once were and on pounding home the idea that these are still the same guys. The cli… More »

Azealia Banks – “Barely Legal” (The Strokes Cover)

Azealia Banks haters, start your engines! I fully expect that just the headline "Azealia Banks - 'Barely Legal' (The Strokes Cover)" already has some people's vitriol tanks overflowing and ready for the comment section, but let's backtrack a bit. Anyone who has been following Banks for a long time -- I'm talking before "212" wa… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: February 2013

It's finally come to this: The first straight-to-Spotify Stereogum Monthly Mix. It's the end of an era, and I'm a little sad about it! But it's a necessity in 2013, and one that will serve this feature well. In theory, over the past three years, this mixtape has functioned to spotlight and memorialize the month'… More »

The Strokes – “All The Time”

Well, this is more like it. "One Way Trigger," the first song we heard from new Strokes album Comedown Machine, was a keyboards-and-falsetto curiosity, but now they're back with the new "All The Time," and they suddenly sound like the Strokes again. It's not like the members of the band are ripping off… More »
