Albert Hammond Jr.’s first solo record, In Transit, was a delightful surprise that no one really expected to be as likable as it was (I mean that backhanded compliment in the best way possible). With its scratchy guitars and 60s hooks it made great summer driving music.
Now the guy’s gone and made another record, Como Te Llama, while The Strokes take an extended break to recover and reflect from their latest extended break. First single, GfC, contains pretty, bubbly guitars and sounds (slightly) more modern than his last record but is no less enjoyable.
Como Te Llama by Albert Hammond, Jr will be out July 8th on RCA Records
