For everyone worried that Julian Casablancas' new album Phrazes for the Young would sound like a bunch of Strokes songs made without the actual Strokes, "River of Brakelights" is the first song we've heard that proves Jules (do people call him that?) might be up for a little experiment, especially if you consider proggy bass and weird time signatures experimental. Us? We would've liked to see what dude would do on a Merzbow steez but he's still young. After listening, make sure to check out former FADER editor and current GQ editor Will Welch's interview with Casablancas from their November issue.
