Again If you aren’t still acquainted with the band ‘The Strokes’, Here’s a background:
The Strokes consist of Julian Casablancas (lead vocals), Nick Valensi (guitar), Albert Hammond, Jr. (guitar), Nikolai Fraiture (bass) and Fabrizio Moretti (drums). The band has released four studio albums, Is This it (2001), Room on Fire (2003), First Impressions of Earth (2006) and Angels (2011) which have sold over 5 million albums worldwide. The band has headlined major festivals in the United States and UK, including the Isle of Wight Festival, Lollapalooza, Hurricane Festival, Splendour In The Grass, Rockness, Outside Lands, and Austin City Limits as well as sold out New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
Since few days ago, I have posted on “My 3 Much Awaited Albums of 2013” and remember that i mentioned this band? Yes? Yes. Comedown Machine is their much awaited fifth studio album that had released some of its songs before like “One Way Trigger” and “All The Time”. It will be released on March 25, 2013 in stores. (How I wished I lived just near them or lived near to a record store with awesome stuff…) But luckily, you can finally listen to the full album!
Here is the video streaming of the full album:
Here are the sequence of songs:
1. Tap Out
2. All the Time
3. One Way Trigger
4. Welcome to Japan
5. 80′s Comedown Machine
7. Slow Animals
8. Partners in Crime
10. Happy Endings
11. Call It Fate, Call It Karma
At first, I was expecting more of their “traditional” edgy sounds and more of Julian’s normal voice range rather than the falsetto. But again, still hands down because the album was a-okay! I mean, they tried experimenting and the album had variety in sounds especially having more technobrega, synthy feel to it. And after repeating the album for several times, I had to say “Chances” is my favorite. In the album, they have this song 50/50 which is more of their traditional sound, but other than that, at some point, most of the songs made me feel like dreaming.
Well, I hope you guys enjoy the album as much as I do, and if not, give it one more chance. Lastly, I hope you won’t feel like you’re in a workout video. Like my friend did. (LOL)
Here’s the “music video’ of “All The Time” that was released few days ago with some scenes from their documentary, “In Transit”
I’ll be posting a summer playlist mostly on indie/alternative rock bands or whatever I fancy that some of you might just enjoy as well. (I’ll try to create mixtapes) plus, bands that caught my attention in my scavenge in YouTube and hopefully some remixes that I will whip up with my cousins.
Despite my boring summer and crazy sched, which is ironic, I can hopefully blog all day.(YAY).
Thanks for reading!
