They're going to be the musical guest on SNL on March 5th.

And Miley Cyrus is hosting.

So, basically my dream episode of SNL.

Haha. I saw that announcement when watching SNL this weekend, and thought of you.

I think I'll fucking love this song when I'm playing it in my truck with the windows down. Good summer tune.

This is exactly what I was thinking the first time I heard it!

They're playing Madison Square Garden April 1st: The Strokes confirm April 1st Madison Square Garden show

I'd SO be there, BUT like with LCD Soundsystem the following night - I AM OUT OF FRIGGIN' TOWN.
(seeing U2 in Argentina, but nevertheless...do I need to fax these bands my travel schedule??)

Guess I will have to make a wee road trip when they hit Philly or Boston or somewhere nearby...

Basing it off of one listen, but, First Impressions of Earth > Is This It, which is not to say I dislike either album. I'm VERY excited for the new one.

Glad you liked FIOE.

I think the B-side to "Under Cover of Darkness" is supposed to be out there at some point this week. I will double check and report back.

Oh, man. The new song "You're So Right" is not doing much for me at all. It sounds so very similar at times to "River of Brakelights" off of Jules' solo album, and is nothing really close to resembling the music from this band that I've fallen in love with. There's some pretty cool guitar work, but the vocal melody hasn't grabbed me yet, and on the whole it's unmemorable.

Bummer.

I mean, the band's first album in five years, only 10 tracks, and one of the ten tracks sounds so similar in rhythm and delivery to a song that we just heard on one of the band member's solo albums? I gotta say, that's a bit weak. Oh well. Still super pumped for the album. I doubt that the rest of the tracks will be in this same vein.

Anyway, here's a link to the song. And a cute video of the band doing cute stuff in the studio during the recording of this album:

Looks like iTunes messed up and posted 30-second snippets of each song:
107.7 The End The Strokes – “Angles” Album Preview + “You’re So Right” B-Side
I need this album NOW.

your so right does sound pretty similar to river of brakelights though

SNL tonight, my dear friends.

They'll play Under Cover of Darkness, of course, and that'll be tight, but I'm really excited to hear the second song. I hope it rocks.

Just saw them play UCOD...as awesome as I was expecting. Maybe they'll do something from Is This It for the second song?
