Almost two years after Angles dropped, The Strokes are set to return with new output in the not-so-distant future. Billboard confirms that the fivesome will release album number five later this year, with “All the Time” already chosen as leadoff single. Apparently Seattle radio station 107.7 previewed the new track at the behest of RCA Records, claiming that “you won’t be disappointed.”

It’s still rumored that the LP was recorded at Electric Lady Studios under the auspices of producer Gus Oberg.

In related news, frontman Julian Casablancas deejayed at Home Sweet Home Tuesday evening as part of the Gay Vinyl party.

Indeed, […]

Contra Guys Will Open the Casual ‘Wildair’ on Orchard Street Next Month

Around this time last year, Contra scored the go-ahead from Community Board 3 to open a casual, “creative American” restaurant at 94 Allen Street. It was to be a place more approachable than the OG spot. Those plans ultimately hit a dead-end (F18 Gallery opened there instead), though, and owners Jeremiah Stone and Fabian Von […]

Bluebird’s Alex Hall Swaps Rosella for Brunswick on Clinton Street

This month in identity crises, one Lower East Side coffee shop has decided to change its name. Bluebird principal Alex Hall opened Rosella exactly one year ago at 23 Clinton Street. Competition here is fierce, given the number of java joints within spitting distance (that would be five). The Australian-born Hall ultimately decided to scrap […]

Acclaimed street artist Ron English has […]
