Video: Julian Casablancas on Conan
Anybody catch Julian Casablancas on the Conan the other night? It wasn’t as “far out” as I expected it to be from reading a couple interviews with him. Sounds like the Strokes with some bloopy bits and programmed drums. Not bad, but not super interesting either. I turned it off and went to sleep before the song was over, but now we can watch all the way through via Hulu.
So I haven’t heard the album all the way through, but I like the song he’s giving away on his website. What do you think? Is this just changing the saddle on a one-trick pony, or is he creating something fresh here?
