Little Joy

November 11, 2008

So yea, I like Little Joy. It’s just too damn hard not too. The side project from Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti has just released a record that’s breezy, catchy and increasingly relistenable. The bossa nova and Latin influences that emerge are a natural byproduct of singer/guitarist Rodrigo Amarante, who sings just a tad behind tempo, calling to mind an even lazier Julian Casablancas. I bet this record would sound even better played outside in warm weather, but for now, it’ll have to get me through the rest of the year. A couple highlights below. Their on tour too, peep the myspace.

“The Next Time Around”

“Brand New Start”
