 Hear The Strokes perform alternate take of Someday

As we wait patiently for their fifth LP, Fake Walls points us to an alternate take of The Strokes‘ classic single, “Someday”. Recorded in December 2000 on WFMU’s The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre, the early cut sports different lyrics and a slightly more abrasive rhythm than its later official recording. If anything, it’s a joy to hear frontman Julian Casablancas giggle.

Currently, WFMU is streaming the rest of the set, which includes the majority of the band’s 2001 debut LP, Is This It: “Alone Together”, “NYC Cops”, “Soma”, “Barely Legal”, “Modern Age”, “Last Night”, “Take it or Leave it”, and “Someday”. Stream it over at WFMU’s archives.
