What would happen if the Strokes were time warped back to the late 80s and had half its members replaced by robots? You no longer have to wonder at that question because the answer is right here (if only sonically). Sometime during an "off-again" period of the Strokes' existence, frontman Julian Casablancas decided to make one hell of a well produced solo record. Built in Los Angeles, New York City, and Nebraska, Phrazes for the Young features the hooks grungy New York baritone we all know and love, underpinned by lush synthesizers, drum machines, and the sort of bubble gum swagger that make this album a sleeper favorite in our record crate.
