The Strokes Recorded Their New Album Together, Like One Big Happy Band

This may not seem like a big deal until you recall that Angles was made piecemeal; Julian Casablancas recorded his vocal tracks separately, then e-mailed them to the rest of the band with "vague" notes. Not so for Comedown Machine — at least according to bassist Nikolai Fraiture, who told Zane Lowe that the band recorded the album "mostly" together. "Like the good old days." Let's hope.
