Show Post: In House #1519
We close out the last of our 2006 preview shows this week with a look at the Strokes' upcoming First Impressions of Earth, due out January 3rd. Like their most recent release, 2003's Room On Fire, the newest effort doesn't necessarily stray that far from the formula they established with their 2001 debut. Which is not to say that the music is derivative or formulaic-- simply that the band has a story and is more or less sticking to it. Most importantly, despite small tweaks in the band's sound (i.e. more keyboard, more tempo variation, etc.), they still bring plenty of hooks to the table.
