CRX’s heavy, melodic “Broken Bones” debuted on Apple’s Beats 1 on Oct. 20. Check it out.

I think it’s in a similar vein as Queens of the Stone Age, which is excellent. What do you think?


CRX, Nick Valensi’s side project, made its television debut on Tuesday, Oct. 11. It played “Ways to Fake It” on Jimmy Kimmel Live”.

It’s still very weird to see Nick on stage, singing, but I thought the band sounded really tight. What did you think?

The band’s debut album will be released on Oct. 28. It will support the album with a two-month tour of North America.

Also, Nick said in a recent interview with DIY that The Strokes are working on new material. That made waves yesterday, but you of course knew that because you read this site and know to expect new Strokes music next year because he said that to Rolling Stone.


Summer Moon, Nikolai Fraiture’s side project, played ‘Chemical Solution’ and ‘With You Tonight’ on a recent episode of ‘Last Call with Carson Daly’.

The band’s debut album figures to be released in the coming months, but there still hasn’t been a date announced.
