The Strokes

I’m not sure why but I thought this song was perfect for today.  It’s not rare, unheard, or especially brilliant but it is a great track from a band whose only strike is that Rolling Stone seems to have an awkward love love relationship with the band.  Other than that there’s never been anything about this NYC quintet [yes I know the picture only has four of them] that I’ve found I disliked.  I like their sound, their attitude, their swagger.  I like it all.  And because I do so should you.

This track appears as the lead off song on their newest full length, First Impressions of Earth (iTunes), and I will go on record and say that it is their best album yet.

  1. The Strokes are freaking awesome. I’m glad you posted this song, because sometimes, things that aren’t rare deserve recognition just because they’re freaking awesome.


  2. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an incredibly long
    comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyway, just wanted to say excellent blog!
