Late last year, Julian Casablancas teased his fans with news of something called Voidz, presumably the follow-up to his 2009 solo debut, Phrazes for the Young. Now, it’s all but confirmed with the arrival of a strange two-minute album preview titled, “Julian Casablancas + The Voidz”.
Various snippets of “found footage” litter throughout as some sludgy post-punk riddles over it. Could this be an edgier side to Casablancas? Or maybe he’s digging into his unprofessed love for MC5 and/or Detroit punk? Whatever the case, it’s a mystery that’s got us plugged in, especially with the ominous warning from Cult Records that it’s “coming soon.”
Perhaps we’ll know more later this month, when he heads down to Latin America.
