Riff: The Strokes – “Slow Animals”

Mar 27, 2013

Is it gone?/I hope that, that, that it’s wrong/Is it gone?/I hope that, that, that it’s wrong

from Slow Animals lyrics by The Strokes

Riding a record full of ambiguous duds, the ‘comedown machine’ title fits snug it its slot here, coloring a generation of woes black and ‘wrong’ with all the tenants of a tight-chested Strokes jam for the hottest of a minute, until it gives way to a Coldplay build and charge and shrugs; [LISTEN].
