The Strokes Are Back in the Studio Already


The Strokes bassist Nikolai Fraiture tweeted yesterday, "Super excited to go in to the studio today and work on some new ideas! I'll keep you posted," then added "For The Strokes, of course!" Recording new stuff, and so soon after Angles! Glass-half-empty take: Bands record stuff all the time; it doesn't mean we'll actually get a quickie album or anything. Glass-half-full take: The band finally figured out how to work together at the end of the sessions for Angles, meaning they've never had more fun than they are having right now; that will lead to a quickie album featuring a next-level Strokes sound that combines the best bits of their early glory with, uh, trip-hop?
