Julian Casablancas – Phrazes For The Young

placeholder image

When Julian Casablancas says the first record he really got into was The Doors, you gotta believe him. After all, his tenor, style , and “whatever, fuck it” mentality all owes itself to Jim Morrison. Some might argue and throw in names like Lou Reed, especially in relation to The Strokes’ 2001 debut Is This It, but really, Casablancas’ swagger and drunken stupor bring back the “glory days” of the late L.A. crooner — though, you’d hardly recognize this with his (former?) New York bandmates.
