Albert Hammond Jr.
Albert Hammond Jr.
“Taut, razor’s edge rock riffs with miles of emotion beneath the metered minimalism…” —The New York Times

“Hammond sounds fully recharged…howling his best vocals ever over stuttering, futuristic riffs of ‘St. Justice,’ the manic grooves of ‘Rude Customer’ and the anthemic ‘Cooker Ship.’” —Rolling Stone

“Tight, snappy, emotionally direct songcraft…[Hammond] brings a convincing poignancy and urgency.” —Pitchfork

“Classic Albert: nimble, instantly memorable…makes our heart hurt a little.” —Noisey

Rife with incessant high-range guitar work, mechanistic rhythms and shrugging, swaggering vocals.” —Stereogum

Albert Hammond, Jr. will play several dates this coming February with English rocker Jake Bugg including stops in New York and Los Angeles. These shows, following a solo U.S. tour and sold-out U.K. run, will continue to celebrate the release of his EP AHJ, which The Hollywood Reporter praised as, “…easily Hammond Jr.’s best solo work to date, as guitars fill each track but never overwhelm the album's persistent drive—his expected cool prevailing throughout.” AHJ is out now on The Strokes bandmate Julian Casablancas’ Cult Records.

AHJ premiered streaming in its entirety on Rolling Stone (http://rol.st/16JSvnw), while track “Rude Customer” premiered on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in The World. Hammond recently performed “St. Justice” on the “Late Show with David Letterman” (http://bit.ly/1gWg5OK).

The video for first single “St. Justice” premiered on Noisey (http://bit.ly/1aRMBw1), while the video for track “Carnal Cruise” premiered on Complex (http://bit.ly/JaV7jZ).

The new EP follows Hammond’s previous solo efforts, 2006’s Yours to Keep, which NME called “…an intimate, frequently beautiful and consistently surprising record that gets better with every listen,” and 2008’s ¿Cómo Te Llama?. Of the new EP’s relationship with his earlier releases, Hammond says, “It’s a combination of both previous recordings, which in turn makes it feel like it’s the best material that I’ve made so far.”

AHJ was produced, engineered and mixed by Grammy-winning producer Gus Oberg and recorded at Hammond’s two studios, Broome Street in Manhattan and One Way Studios in upstate New York. Of working with Oberg, Hammond says “I’ve been working with him since my first solo project, after we met and became best friends. We get along and we understand each other musically, so everything just flows.” Hammond played all of the instruments on the EP himself, excluding drums on several tracks, which were played by longtime collaborator Matthew Frank Romano.

Since the release of ¿Cómo Te Llama?, Hammond has released two critically acclaimed albums with The Strokes, 2011’s Angles and this year’s Comedown Machine. Of his inspirations for AHJ, Hammond said “Once you play music for a living, you’re always thinking about stuff. Conversations with friends and things you hear in movies – things come up and become lyrics. Hearing other people’s songs becomes like competition – you hear something and mentally you want to beat it. Life in general is pretty inspiring”

Cult Records is helmed by Julian Casablancas. In addition to Albert Hammond, Jr., releases include Cerebral Ballzy, Exclamation Pony, Rey Pila, Reputante and more.
