The Voidz – “Coul As A Ghoul”

This post was originally published on this site

Is it possible that the Voidz could’ve made a song too weird for their new album? Yesterday, I would’ve answered that question with an emphatic no. The whole point of the Strokes leader Julian Casablancas’ current band seems to be that they’re equipped to translate all of Casablancas’ weirdest impulses into actual music. During the … More »

Stream The Voidz Virtue

This post was originally published on this site

We’ve been hearing about the new Voidz album Virtue for a while now, and there’s been no shortage of previews of just what kind of madman journey Julian Casablancas is preparing to take us on this time. It started with the whiplash one-two of “Leave It In My Dreams” (which was one of our … More »

Oh hey sorry, I got sidetracked and totally spaced on ya the other day. I never finished that thing I was saying about this new Voidz album, Virtue. Where were we again? Did I get to the part about the Queer Eye reboot and “Fab Five” food dude Antoni and how he included the … More »

On Virtue, Julian Casablancas Scorches The Strokes’ Legacy And Leaps Into The Voidz

This post was originally published on this site

Back in January, over the course of less than 24 hours and with zero advance notice, the Voidz dropped a pair of new songs. On Tuesday the 23rd, it was “Leave It In My Dreams,” and on Wednesday the 24th, it was “QYURRYUS.” It was their first new music in more than three years, and … More »

Watch Julian Casablancas’ Uncomfortable Interview, Voidz Performance On James Corden

This post was originally published on this site

The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas has a long history of saying goofily inscrutable things in interviews. But what happens when he meets an interviewer who’s even goofier than him, and in some profoundly different ways? Last night, we got a chance to look at that when Casablancas was on James Corden’s Late Late Show, … More »

The Voidz – “ALieNNatioN”

This post was originally published on this site

The Voidz are really saturating the market over here, aren’t they? They just shared Virtue track “Pyramid Of Bones,” which is some art-rock-via-Sabbath shit (“nananananananana white man’s LIES” wtf), and concurrently, they drop a different Virtue track, “ALieNNatioN.” These two songs do not sound like products of the same band, which I suspect is … More »

The Voidz – “Pyramid Of Bones”

This post was originally published on this site

Can you feel it? Can you feel the world shifting? Can you see that the planets are realigning, that we are reaching the point where Ariel Pink is as popular as Ed Sheeran? No? Well, then Julian Casablancas still has plenty of work left to do. But he and his newly renamed band the … More »

Nostalgia Salesmen Jack White & Julian Casablancas Attempt To Outrun The Past

This post was originally published on this site

I was a churchgoing Goody Two-Shoes with a straight-A report card until my senior year of high school, when the Strokes and White Stripes turned me into an authority-spurning criminal. More »

The Voidz – “All Wordz Are Made Up” Video

This post was originally published on this site

No lie, I wake up every day wondering when Julian Casablancas is gonna drop a new single from his upcoming Voidz album, Virtue. Part of this is idle curiosity, part is paranoia: I’ve heard the whole record, and now, I just want excuses to write about it. And I know that if he doesn’t … More »

The Voidz – “All Wordz Are Made Up”

This post was originally published on this site

Leave It In My Dreams,” the first song we heard from the new Voidz album Virtue, was shockingly, well, normal. But Julian Casablancas made sure that the next two, “QYURRYUS” and “Pointlessness,” more than made up for it in weirdness, one an amazingly ridiculous bizarro-novelty hit and the other a drifting-in-space synth-prog … More »
