Why? Customers buying from secondary sites only perpetuates the problem with touting, it's a two-way street. Enforcing ID at the door helps everybody in the grand scheme of things, it's a minor inconvenience that means as many people will have access to affordable ticketing in the future.

His guitar looks quite small against his body. Does his guitar look quite small against his body?

Nintendo Blood is possibly the only thing that resembles anything from PFTY and it's a corker. This album is the sound of Julian pushing the boat farther out than the Strokes would ever permit.

If (like is mise) you happen to dwell on the Emerald Isle, download Hola Unblocker from the Chrome store so you can bypass those pesky country streaming restrictions. To business! Really enjoying this so far. It's not as dense and impenetrable I was expecting (and as Human Sadness suggested) but I am only two tracks in. Crunch Punch is fantastic, such gritty tones but there's a watertight tune holding everything together.

'And I guess I still like writing guitar solos and stuff, and JP [Bowersock], who helped me co-write or coached me through like all the Strokes solos on the first three records.' Anyone know anything more about this? I know that Casablancas basically wrote all of the arrangements for the first couple of Strokes albums but I presumed that the solos came from either Nick or Albert.

Not exactly, downvoting isn't an attempt at suppression of opinions you disapprove of, it's a way of just expressing disagreement.

September 3, 2014 on Julian Casablancas + The Voidz – “Human Sadness”
Really excited for this, Phrazes was criminally underrated and probably the 3rd/4th best album that Julian has had a hand in.

Dang, can't stream this from the Emerald Isle. Where's the luck of the Irish when you want new Spoon?

That's awesome, Lacey! How did he come to pick you out? It seems as though he selected you specificially from the crowd. He thought you were cute, right?

Awesome track; upon hearing the strings intro did anyone else feel an urge to break into 'The Simpssssooooonnnnssss'?

What is with all these people filming the performances on their smartphones? Couldn't they all convene beforehand, set up a Whatsapp group, pull straws to determine who is the sole person responsible for filming the performance and subsequently responsible for posting it to the group instead of this LUNACY? Christ, I feel like I'm taking crazy pills here.

Awe-sum. Squarehead are terrific. Great to see a feature on some new Irish music; we're practically bursting at the seams over here with musical talent so good on the 'gum.

Having said that about 'Unbelievers' it still hasn't stopped the melody rattling around the inside of my skull

Anyone else struggling to warm to 'Unbelievers'? The live renditions threw me off immediately and the studio version hasn't managed to convert me yet. 'Finger Back' is an early favourite, not crazy on the spoken word interlude though, and 'Obvious Bicycle' is unspeakably gorgeous.

50/50 rules. Julian sounds like he's wailing from the bottom of a gutter through a broken radiator belt.
