By now I’m sure most of you have heard about the new Julian Casablancas album Phrazes For The Young, and if you’ve heard the whole thing I’m curious to know what you think about it. I posted 11th Dimension and we all know how great that song is but I can’t say the rest of the album had the same impact. It’s a decent album but aside from that song, Left & Right In The Dark and say maybe two more there’s just nothing that standout to rave about. Don’t get me wrong, I like the album butÂ I may have to listen to it a little more to really understand it.
With that said, I thought it would be nice to go back to 2001 for a second and post a little post-punk/garage rock revival for your Thursday morning. The new Julian Casablancas still writes incredible songs but I have to say the energy and sound he was so meticulous about creating back in those is second to none. The vocals seemed to blend in better with the production and everything came together to give you that unique experience that pretty much created that garage punk movement at the time.
Someday is my favorite track from The Strokes extremely hyped and critically acclaimed LP,Â Is This It. No special fx, no lasers, no spaceships, just rock & roll. Iâ€™d like to elaboraterate more but have way too much on my plate today, enjoy a break from the space age.
