As much as I enjoy the Strokes and am looking forward to a new album from them, I'm at the same time not. Hear me out. The Strokes are awesome, but I'm starting to wonder if I enjoy each members side project more than the Strokes themselves. Albert Hammond Jr. has put out two solid albums since the band went on hiatus. Fab Moretti's group Little Joy put out on of my favorite albums of last year. Julian Casablanca did some awesome tracks with Pharell, M.I.A., and The Lonely Island. And now Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture has his own side project with Nickel Eye. I'm not saying I don't ever want another Strokes album, but just only as long as they continue to produce awesome music from their side projects as well.
Nickel Eye's album The Time of the Assassins is available now on Rykodisc.
