11th Dimension

Biff von Bert recommended Julian Casablancas' solo album, Phrazes For the Young, to me the other day. I didn't pay much attention to it when it came out, but it has some outstanding songs on it, especially "11th Dimension," which has a great Casablancas vocal without sounding like The Strokes, and sounds like a long-lost song from the circa 1980 Blondie/Talking Heads New York City New Wave scene.

thanks for the shout out. the album as a whole is utterly goofy; definitely worth a listen. i'm not sure what else i expected from a singer who (unironically) cites cyndi lauper as a major influence.
