What did you think when you heard that Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. was releasing a solo album?
Well, Albert is cool... That much is definitely true.
I waited quite a while to give it a listen, but Yours to Keep really isn't bad at all. It definitely surprised me a bit. It sounds about how you'd expect it to sound, but for some reason I was pleasantly surprised.
I know you probably already have the album, but just incase you don't...

I can't have an Albert Hammond post without posting something about the Strokes, so here's the Strokes doing "Walk on the Wild Side" at a show in May of last year...

Has Casablancas ever sounded more like Lou Reed?
Speaking of Lou Reed...
Lou Reed and The Strokes- Walk on the Wild Side (Live)
From the Rolling Stones 1000th issue party. Unfortunately the recording was somewhat ruined by some smarmy bitch saying "now you have some material for your blog... not that I read it." Or something like that. Stupid girl.
