This week’s artist of the week really needs no introduction – but we’re gonna go ahead and give you guys one anyways. The Strokes have been making great rock music since their first album dropped in 2001. That album was hailed as an instant classic, and some were calling The Strokes “the saviors of rock and roll.” After releasing several more albums, the band seemingly disappeared from the music scene, until 2010, when the band set a release date for their forthcoming album ( which was eventually released March of 2011). Their newest disk, “Angles” is their first release since 2006, and features the classic Strokes’ sound of pick driven guitar riffs and singer Julian Casablancas’ excellent vocals. This is definitely one album to pick up this year! Enjoy The Strokes on the blog all week long!
We’re kicking off this week with a track off The Strokes’ latest album “Angles” give a listen to “Taken For a Fool.”
