When I first heard the new Strokes single, Juicebox (or Juice Box), I was skeptical. The blatant Peter Gunn riff (to cop Pitchfork) rubbed me precisely the wrong way, and Casablancas' vocals failed to sound - well - convincing. The track is tight; almost calculating. Maybe it'll be a radio hit. Maybe it'll be a hit on MTV. Here's hoping the album is a lot stronger than this offering.

I don't post stuff I dislike, but I will make an exception here:
The Strokes - Juicebox


In preparation for my multi-part exploration of shoegazer (which I will arbitrarily say begins on Friday), here are two newer tracks to bring you back down:
Serena Maneesh - Un Deux
White Rainbow - Guilded Golden Ladies
