Julian Casablancas solo record

This clip surfaced yesterday, a preview of a forthcoming solo album from Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas. Bandmates have pursued other side projects (my favorite of which is drummer Fabrizio Moretti’s Little Joy), and apparently Julian went and recorded something on his own, prolonging the moment when the Strokes all get together in the same room to record something new. This clip implies epic-ness and new worlds of wonder; I have high hopes.

Phrazes For The Young is out this fall on Cult Records, and in true ascetic Strokes form, it’s only eight songs long. The album was written and recorded over the last year in LA, NYC and Nebraska. Julian plans to tour in support of it in the coming months.

  • Have you heard the Danger Mouse/Sparklehorse collab – “Dark Night of the Soul”? He has a song on there that is, much like the rest of the album, very solid.

  • Yeah that song, “Little Girl,” I think the name of it is…is really good!

  • Is it just me or was that really Ratatat-ty?

  • Not only does this make me hot, but it also bothers me.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
