((Albert Hammond Jr.)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

You may know Albert Hammond Jr.; he's the current guitarist for this NYC band called The Strokes. They have lots of hair. Anyway, Albert Hammond Jr. should be standing proud, because he just released a pretty damn fine solo album (his debut no less). It's called Yours to Keep and it's ridiculous how listenable it is.

Yes, it sounds a little Stroke-y, but it also sounds a lot like 60's sunshine pop. And do I hear a young Rod Stewart somewhere in there? Hammond certainly didn't phone this one in for a quick paycheck. All of his songs are fully realized (realizing that they need hook and bop and pop) and his obvious talent makes me appreciate his other band a little more too.
