The Strokes Vinyl, CD & tapes by The Strokes at Norman Records

The fact that two members of possibly the most potent practitioners of the new wave of garage rock met at boarding school says a lot about the Strokes. For some they were a breath of fresh air with their deliberately lo-fi tunes and cool New Yoik att...read more »

The Strokes
First Impressions Of Earth

Unless you are a fan it's easy to forget that the Strokes made four further albums following their groundbreaking 'Is This It' masterclass. 'First Impressions of Earth' was their awfully titled third LP released in 2006 and was perhaps their difficult third album showing the band soldiering on once the hype machine died down. Still, it contains their usual small cluster of playlist-filling indie-rock not quite classics.

The Strokes
Angles

Angles was the fourth album from seemingly long term New Yorkers The Strokes and was the first album that they made as more of a collaborative effort rather than Julian Casablancas calling the shots. Their previous LP First Impressions of Planet Earth saw them criticised somewhat for their narrow sound world so aided by the more democratic approach, Angles opened things up a bit and saw the band experimenting with new textures and moods. 

The Strokes
The New Abnormal

When it was announced that The Strokes would be releasing their first new LP since 2013’s ‘Comedown Machine’ the news was shared around the internet at almost the same pace as Jennifer Aniston’s 'Friends' reunion snap. Amid all the excitement, there was also apprehension about what a new record from this notoriously inconsistent group would bring. Fortunately, ‘The New Abnormal’ represents arguably the best blend of The Strokes' dilettantish indie style and Julian Casablancas’ art-rock tendencies in their post-‘Room On Fire’ discography.

The Strokes
Comedown Machine

Comedown Machine was the Strokes album where, during the pre-publicity, bassist Nikolai Fraiture ventured from the usual 'this is our best album yet' party line to describe the recording process as 'awful' prompting the band to pull a media blackout and not do any promotional appearances. Listening to it, it's hard to tell that there were any problems at all. It's fresh and smart and sexy and strange. Though the long help feeling is that they'll never again reach Is This It' heights, Comedown Machine proved that the Strokes were still genuinely trying to make good music.   

The Strokes
Room On Fire

Room on Fire was the 'difficult' follow up to the Strokes debut and forever high water mark Is This it. Always suffering from the missed opportunity of not being called Is *This* It, Room On Fire was caught between being a retread of their debut and forging ahead with a new more high fidelity sound. Despite a smoother production, it just about does a job in satisfying fans of their catchy and cool indie rock whilst proving that the band weren't going to be just a one album wonder.

The Strokes
Is This It

The Strokes’ dynamic 2001 debut Is This It, with hard-to-resist faves like Last Nite and Someday which helped the growly Julian Casablancas and co. wedge themselves firmly into the indie rock canon. The New Yorkers’ kickstarter for the 2000s indie scene, available on regular LP from Rough Trade or a limited audiophile version on Music On Vinyl.
