New Megapuss Video – “Adam & Steve”

When not brandishing his Little Joy, the Strokes’ Fabrizio Moretti plays drums with the penis-skirted Devendra Banhart and cohort Greg Rogove in Megapuss. For the Amy Jo Diaz-directed “Adam & Steve” video we get the guys riffing on George Michael’s “Faith” video, “I’m Too Sexy,” catwalks, and etc., before shooting the clip. The results? Just… More »

Stream Fab Moretti’s Little Joy

Instead of pointing out the multiple pun possibilities in the above, we’ll point you toward Little Joy’s MySpace, where you can hear Fab & Co’s forthcoming self-titled debut (11/4 via Rough Trade). More »

New Coldplay – “Glass Of Water” (Live In Antwerp With Albert Hammond, Jr.)

We just acquainted ourselves with “Lost+,” the Prospekt’s March version of “Lost!” with a Jay-Z verse affixed, but less than 24 hours later, here’s “Glass Of Water,” in its live debut. Chris Martin & Co. are accompanied on the track by Stroke Albert Hammond, Jr., the band’s current tour support. Musically, it basically sounds like… More »

Julian Casablancas

When the Strokes hit in 2001 with the scene-seeding, 35-minute, retrofitted LP Is This It, the music media gave NYC license to reclaim a long lost sense of cool. More »

There Will Maybe Be A Strokes Album In Not Too Long

NME.com reports Hambone Jr. is on the record saying the Strokes are “definitely figuring out something to do for 2009,” which gives us all about a year to continue stoking the not-actually-real-but-yay-blogs Albert vs. Julian rivalry. More »

New Santogold, Julian Casablancas & Pharrell Video – “My Drive Thru”

When we first brought up the selling power trio of Santogold, Julian Casablancas, and Pharrell we played you their fast food-redolent jingle “My Drive Thru” and mentioned that there would eventually be a video … or, well, Chuck Taylor commercial for the Three Artists, One Song campaign. The long-awaited clip resembles the billboard adverts I… More »

New Albert Hammond, Jr. Video – “GfC”

You’ve heard the song, you’ve streamed the album, and now you can simulate dropping acid while having the audio-visual realization that Hambone Jr. is making a case for Top Stroke. Quoth Goldenfiddle: “…now he’s starting to make you look bad, Casablancas.” Pretty much, yeah. More »

Stream Albert Hammond Jr.’s ¿Cómo Te Llama?

We (ok, you guys) have established Hammond’s Spanish grammar is bad. Now you can listen to ¿Cómo Te Llama? at his MySpace and weigh in on the tunes, too. The album’s out 7/8 on Black Seal. More »

New Santogold, Julian Casablancas & Pharrell – “My Drive Thru”

It’s an unlikely trio of artist that are helping get Converse’s centennial celebration underway. Maybe not the pairing of Pharrell and Santogold — actually it’s somewhat surprising that this is their first project together — but Strokes lead man Julian Casablancas is a bit more leather jackets than colored prints, and besides he’s been mute… More »

New Albert Hammond, Jr. – “GfC”

Now that we have glimpsed Albert Hammond Jr.’s pretty vacant (apartment) album art, we can get to the more substantive business of hearing what the relatively prolific Stroke has in store for his second solo LP. “GfC,” which is the tune’s core chord progression (G-F minor-C, right guys?), is very promising, a quick cut or… More »

Santogold, Julian Casablancas And Pharrell Are Converse All Stars

What do you get when you combine the selling power of Bud Light‘s Santogold with the laconic New York charm of the Stroke’s Casablancas and the non-laconic L.A. sizzle of N.E.R.D.-y Pharrell Williams (not featuring Lindsay Lohan)? Basically, a well-produced Neptunes-style sneaker jingle with the guy from the Strokes and Santi on it. Could be… More »

Albert Hammond Jr.’s ¿Cómo Te Llama? Album Art

While you were waiting for the Strokes to get bored of looking cool with no place to go, Albert Hammond, Jr. has put together his second solo record. It was recorded in a studio you will never afford (Electric Lady) with friends more privileged than you will ever have (Sean Lennon) and if it’s anywhere… More »

The Strokes Are Working Out Kinks For LP4, Watching Gossip Girl

It’s been over two years since First Impressions Of Earth, but the Strokes are always fresh in our minds thanks to a neverending parade of covers (Rhymefest, Chris Thile, Howie Beck, Lightspeed Champion, etc.). Plus, Albert Hammond Jr. has recorded two solo albums (Como Te Llama is out this summer) in the hiatus. It’s next… More »

Lightspeed Champion And Alex Turner Cover The Strokes

Turns out Alex Turner does a pretty good Julian Casablancas. Honest to blog! And with that we’re surprising, nobody. A’Monk ribbing aside, this really is a fun cover of Room On Fire burner “Reptila,” Alex joining Lightspeed Champion & friends (billed as the Pun Lovin’ Criminals) at the White Heat party in Mayfair, across the… More »

Alternate Queens Of The Stone Age (Feat. Julian Casablancas) Video – “Sick, Sick, Sick”

Still no sign of Bulby! But this skeezed-out second-take on QOTSA’s first Vulgaris single comes packing its own digital delights, including a thrashing, hypercolored take on the dancing iPod silhouettes and a lost little girl with a thing for flicking off the cam and baring her assets. Obviously not intended for MTV USA! We scanned… More »

New Strokes Video – “You Only Live Once”

In which we see the retro cool of the Strokes as the logical extension of centuries of physical and spiritual (hey, meditating lady) evolution. Seems like this record came out like four years ago, right? “Juicebox” leaked and set an underwhelming first impression of First Impressions in late ’05, so in blog years it wasMore »

New Queens Of The Stone Age Commercial – “Sick, Sick, Sick”

Our taste of Era Vulgaris continues with this balls-out rocker from Mr. Homme and Co. Stroke-in-Chief Julian Casablancas shares vocal duties and offers some Casio synth guitar riffage. And while this official clip is not a proper music video, we’re so taken with Queens’ raunchy new spokesbulb we don’t mind playing into their marketers’ hands. More »

Drew Barrymore’s Fab, New Music Comedy

On Valentine’s Day weekend nine years ago, Drew teamed up with Adam Sandler for The Wedding Singer. Maybe ’80s-music romantic comedies are her thing! This lover’s day, she pairs with Hugh Grant for Music and Lyrics, featuring Haircut 100. (And Drew’s haircut #100?)

FUN FACT: Looks like Drew learned to sing for… More »

Stereogum’s Favorite Live Shows Of The Year

While we’re almost done with thinking about the year that was, we can’t let it go by without recapping the year in our favorite concerts. Most of the shows we saw were in the LES (’cause it’s closer than say LA), but if we were there, it was eligible for inclusion on this here list… More »
