For some artists, just being in one band is not enough. The creative juices run free with these folks and they crave the outlets for release. Put Albert Hammond, Jr. in this category.
Not content with a new release every two to three years with the Strokes, Hammond has just released his second solo album in as many years. Consistency is sometimes a virtue and it is certainly the case here. Hammond’s sense of melody shines in arrangements that play it loose and fast.
Twangville is proud to give away a signed vinyl copy of Hammond’s new ¿Cómo Te Llama?. To win, post a comment with your favorite moonlighting member of a band. A winner will be selected at random when the contest ends on Thursday, 8/28/08 at midnight ET.**
