[LISTEN] The Strokes – Angles (Full Album Stream) by wearesme

Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is over; The Strokes are back and here we have their latest record in all it’s glory.

Angles is the New York bands first album for almost 5 years; an incredible wait for a group with so many plaudits and a massive following.

They kicked off all the hype with the release of Under Cover Of Darkness as a free download via their website and this was followed by leaks of Machu Pichu and You’re So Right and a performance on SNL.

Listen to the album in full below and let us know if it was worth the wait!

Fresh from blowing the roof off at Brixton Academy on Saturday evening for the NME Awards Tour; Skream, Benga and Artwork popped in to see Trevor Nelson in the 1Xtra studios and were kind enough to give a live performance of their song ‘The Bug’, taken from their debut album Magnetic Man.

Below you can see footage of the performance; a fascinating insight, as they piece the song together as if it were a puzzle. Technology these days!

SME RELOAD: [REVIEW] NME Awards Tour Brixon 20/02/11



[REVIEW] NME Awards Tour @ Brixton 20/2/11 by wearesme

SME were very kindly invited down to Brixton Academy for the NME Awards Tour on Saturday evening by our friends at Get Involved. The lineup looked pretty impressive; The Vaccines, Everything Everything, Magnetic Man and Crystal Castles all in one evening? It was like Christmas come early!

The Awards Tour began all the way up in Glasgow at the beginning of the month and this, the biggest show of them all, would bring it to a close.

We were sure to arrive early because The Vaccines were up first, and following our interview with Freddie from the band, we couldn’t wait to seeing the band live for the first time.
They certainly didn’t disappoint; their up beat rock n roll sound had the main floor bouncing, especially during their brilliant debut single Post Break-Up Sex and the frantic 1 minute 20 seconds long Wreckin’ Bar, which will forever be a fan favourite. The band also performed their next single ‘If You Wanna’ which is due for release in March.

Their sets remain fairly short, at roughly the half hour mark; but in this short time they bring with them brilliant positive energy and upbeat, feel good tracks which leave you in great spirits. Having now seen them live, it is easy to see why they are tipped to be a band that will play a major part in guitar music’s resurgence in 2011.
