Let’s party like it’s 2003: The Strokes are kind of awesome. I’ve been listening to “Room On Fire” again this week; it’s a such an effective album. The Strokes make the kind of music they set out to make, and do it well.
Andrew Bird has an essay about songwriting on nytimes.com. I wish it were interesting! But I’m excited for his new album, which apparently he’s recording next week.
