Tag Archive: The Strokes

You can get an early listen to the full Strokes album here from our friends at pitchfork and see what you think of the new album. It definitely sounds more like Julian Casablanca’s solo album than it does older strokes stuff but there are some good tracks on here as well. Let me know what you think of the new album.


So She and Him, The Strokes, and Vampire Weekend all have new albums coming out in the next few months. Rejoice! She and Him’s new album is called Volume 3 which is in keeping with their past volume themed albums. The Strokes come back with Comedown Machine and we’ll see if it results in as much debate as their last album did. Finally, Vampire Weekend is back with their third album called Modern Vampires of the City. If their last two albums are any indication the only way this would not be good is if they decided to go the heavy metal route.

The Strokes are apparently getting ready to release a new album and to show it they have put out a new single called “One Way Trigger”. the song sounds more like Julian Casablanca’s solo album stuff than it does like some of the older Strokes material. It will be interesting to see if this will be the whole style of the entire new album or not. Check out the song below and see what you think.

The Black Keys have recently done a cover of the Buddy Holly song “Dearest” which is going to be released on the album Rave On Buddy Holly which is a tribute album that is going to be released on June 28th. The Black Keys open up the album and put a sunny laid back feel on this one time ballad. Other artists on the album include She and Him, Modest Mouse, My Morning Jacket, and Julian Casablanca from The Strokes. If all the other covers are this good this album is definitely one to check out.

So the Strokes are coming back with their new album entitled Angels which is coming out March 22 in the U.S.  If you watched these guys on Saturday Night Live last weekend you would have seen them perform their new single “Under Cover of Darkness” live.  Judging by their performance and hearing the recorded version of the song, it differs a little bit from their older stuff but fans of the Strokes will ot be disappointed.  So check out the new single “under Cover of Darkness” from the Strokes.
