The new Strokes album “Angles” leaked sometime yesterday. I’ve given the album about 5 listens-to so far this morning at work, but won’t be able to do a complete writeup of the record until later tonight or tomorrow, though I will tell you this – I’m really liking it so far.
To whet your appetites, here are a few tracks to check out: The awesomely 80s verse of Two Kinds Of Happiness turns into an amazingly perfect guitar song that is very much The Strokes. And Boys Are Back In Town-inspired track Gratisfaction is the band at their absolute best – slow churning rhythm, guitars that aren’t quite lead and aren’t quite rhythm, and Julian’s syrupy vocals layered right on top. The perfect recipe for the perfect Strokes song.
