phrazes for the young.
on october 20, julian casablancas (better known as the frontman for the strokes) will release his solo debut, phrazes for the young. i've heard the sample song, the first single, 11th dimension, and it is pretty rad! link to his myspace page and the song, plus a few videos here. where the strokes were hailed as the gritty saviors of rock 'n roll at the time they released is this it back in what, 2001? -- julian is taking a new route complete with synths and drum machines on his solo work, and i LIKE IT. if 11th dimension is any representation of the rest of the album, it's going to be a catchy electro-pop party. i'm not sure what this means for the strokes; i cooled to them after room on fire. i'm pretty excited for the 20th. :)
