Julian has the voice, Nick and Fab the bone structure, but Strokes fans should adore Albert Hammond Jr. the most. The distinctive rhythm guitarist seems to give the biggest shit about the fans. He cut together the feel-good video for "All the Time," the only piece of promotional material for the Strokes' 2013 album, Comedown Machine. Now, as the band hits the occasional festival, AHJ hits the road with a new album of jittery rock & roll shakes, Momentary Masters. Recorded with Strokes producer Gus Oberg, it's a throwback to the taut strumming and manic garage energy of his early days, like Tom Petty stuck in a vintage arcade game. So, like more Strokes, basically.
