Well this was a nice surprise for our Tuesday afternoons/mornings, the video for The Strokes' track "Call Me Back" which was solely created by Mr. Albert Hammond Jr. The video is simple in its aesthetics, yet works beautifully with the little material in it. Shots of slow motion water dripping, along with a pretty girl walking along with water hitting her as she does so. Sounds simple, becasue it is, but as a visual treat it's pretty damn cool and hit the nail on the head for me today. Check it out above via We All Want Someone.

An entire decade after the release of their debut album Is This It, The Strokes long overdue fourth LP Angles has finally been released to the masses of swooning girls (and guys) who have been waiting anxiously for this moment for five years. It's been made public that the process of making Angles was long, tiring, and ultimately a shitty experience for the entire band. After all the disagreements and delays, the band is back in the limelight with a new album in hand, once again living like fucking rock 'n' roll kings. So, why is it that we've had to wait five years for the five New Yorkers to finally come together and make their fourth album? And after all this time is it even worth listening to?
So as mentioned earlier in the week The Strokes made a roaring return to form last week when playing an awesome set in Austin for SXSW. Then, on Monday we got the announcement from Leeds and Reading Festival that they would be heading up a day at each too. With the release of their album Angles hitting the spot for most people, last night they kept the talk going by hitting up David Letterman and performing album track, "Taken For A Fool".

The album is set for release on the 18th but most already know that the album caught the drips over the weekend. Check it out in the player below and expect our review for the album coming soon.
After an awesome performance on SNL, the release of the classy music video for "Under Cover Of Darkness," and their "Making of Angles" video series, could there possibly be more Strokes news for us to salivate over? Of course there's more! With less than two weeks to go before The Strokes' long awaited fourth LP Angles drops, what better way to occupy your time than listen to two more tracks from the album. After the jump you can listen to two previously unheard tracks (via 107.7 The End), titled "Machu Picchu" and "Taken For A Fool." The two tracks are amazing to say the least, and if they, as well as "Under Cover Of Darkness" and "You're So Right," have shown us anything, it's that Angles is looking to be a solid comeback for the New York band.
In the last few weeks, The Strokes have been giving us a behind the scenes look at the creation of their upcoming fourth LP Angles, set for release on March 22nd.
