Little Joy 

It's been nearly three years since the Strokes released a record; in the meantime, we've learned just how much talent is hidden behind Julian Casablancas' yalp. Hot on the heels of Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.'s second solo LP comes Little Joy, a project showcasing the songwriting crafts of Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti alongside Los Hermanos singer-songwriter Rodrigo Amarante. The pairing sounds like a day at the beach, with breezy Tropi­cália brushstrokes alongside pitch-perfect pop songs that would still sound at home on a Strokes LP. With Binki Shapiro also in the mix as Little Joy's very own Nico, the three-singer group makes a strong case for extending Julian's holiday.
