Ask For Seconds

It is an exercise in simplicity, this experience with The Strokes’ Albert Hammond, Jr., on his new EP, AHJ. Compared to the baroque pop sensibilities of his 2006 debut LP, Yours To Keep, and the indie rock of his 2008 followup, ¿Cómo Te Llama?, this EP does not ask the listener for a huge investment. AHJ endures for maybe 20 minutes, with the songs’ modest arrangements offering a lot of breathing room. Opening cuts “St. Justice” and “Strange Tidings” are the sparsest offerings; the songs get progressively more fleshed out, but only slightly. By the fifth song, “Cooker Ship,” probably the fullest number on AHJ and the one that recalls his previous outings, the fact that Hammond is a musical force behind the Strokes is at its most evident.
