–Strokes lead singer Julian Casablancas is set to release a solo record called ‘Phrazes For The Young’. Head here for a preview. Or watch the vid.
-Speaking of Julians and prominent NY bands, Interpol front-man Paul Banks (aka Julian Plenti) has a couple new songs out there. Check Stereogum or his homepage.
-The new Dodos album leaked on to the net 2 months before the street date, so the band decided to put it online to stream. I haven’t had the chance to sit down with the whole record, but I’m warming up the the third track ‘Fables’, which P4k has online.
