I have to be honest, I passed on covering Albert Hammond Jr's first album cause I thought some of the tracks treaded too close to new Strokes territory. The good news, however, is that our first peak at ¿Cómo Te Llama? (out July 8th) shows Albert has grown as a songwriter and is finding his own sound. "GfC" starts by riding a sparse verse groove, the kind where the space between the beats is just as important. When it's chorus time, the song explodes and Albert confidently belts it out. He's never sounded better!
