Phrazes for the Young

Album Art for Phrazes for the Young (November 2, 2009)

In the spirit of Summertime tunes, this is a track from another Strokes band member, Julian Casablancas. I have no clue where I heard this song first, I don’t know why its on my computer, and I don’t know if I ever listened to it until about 4 weeks ago (when I put Little Joy on a genius playlist in iTunes, and WHAMMY – Julian Casablancas popped up too).

I haven’t heard all of Casablancas’ solo album, Phrazes for the Young, but this track is rad. “11th Dimension” is a fantastic fusion of different elements. There are synths in the heart of the sound (especially the anthem-like chords that are hammered out through the entire song, except the chorus), combined with electro beats and some wave synths. The verses have a busy but clean sound to them, which explodes into a symphony of slightly chaotic sounds during the chorus that are filled with energy and an upbeat, positive message.

At the end of the day, this is just a really fun, kick ass track. If you are looking for another track to add to your Summer playlist, then this is it. Strange video aside, this song rocks. Enjoy.
