I’ve only today listened to the new Strokes album and that’s OK. I don’t need to be on top of everything anymore, not even bands I used to absolutely adore. 19-year-old-me would hate me but that’s OK too. She had to compensate for things I’ve made peace with today.
As for Comedown Machine, it’s less bad than Angles, I think, but it’s still not great. Julian needs to dirty up his voice again.

I know you hate to be impressed with someone else (other than yourself)
But you know trying to hold back on being an asshole helps
Fear of Sleep, The Strokes
Waaaait, I’m not gonna give you a break

THE STROKES WITH JARVIS COCKER COVERING THE CARS JUST WHAT I NEEDED AT READING 2011
Julian Casablancas and Jarvis Cocker - They’re not Jesus, they just have the same initials :’)
The jarv omg so many great people on one stage how did things not explode
Oh hey, it’s my favourite frontman from the 90s and my favourite frontman from the 00s (and his band) covering a song by a band… I wanted to check out years ago.
The Strokes - “Life is Simple in the Moonlight”
Well this is… mellow. I like it though, which means this is the first new Strokes song I like at first listen. I was starting to fear that I wouldn’t really like it and would have to comfort myself with the fact that Nick is still dreamy.
