MP3: Albert Hammond Jr. - "GfC"

so Albert Hammond Jr. is a guitarist for The Strokes and also makes pretty good solo stuff - a little bit like his band but less fuzzy and gritty and more classic rock sounding. Here's the MP3 of "GfC," the first single off of his new album ¿Como te Llama?

It's a nice 60's number, starting with a rolling, echoey, sunny guitar, adding in "ooh-oohs" and a hint of rockabilly, then getting noisy. Hammond's voice reminds me a little of Britt Daniel from Spoon, and it's a good, timeless, and well-crafted song that avoids the trends. I'm looking forward to the album, which comes out July 8 on Black Seal Records.
