Strokes Consipracy

Another Strokes track leaked. This is so lame, the business that is. Has an album ever leaked one track at a time? Not to my knowledge, this is a whole marketing scheme. Radiohead got it down, they knew that he internet downloaders were their friends, that's why the day after they announced the track list to Hail to the Theif it leaked and similar fashion with Kid A. So this strategic marketing move for the Strokes is working because everyone talks about a track for a while then the net simmers down and bam leak another, the nets all a buzzing again. Keeping the Strokes on our minds in preperation for the album release. So RCA, I'm going to play your game, I'm not against it I just see right through it.

The Strokes - 15 Minutes of Pain (song title irony)
props to Stereogum for the track

I think I saw one of these posted somewhere a while back but I'm not sure so for your listening pleasure.

Sufjan Stevens - Live At The Triple Door
. "The Triple Door is a club in downtown Seattle in Washington and the show was broadcast on KEXP-FM."

New Pornographers - Live At The Triple Door. "August 23, 2005 recording by the group to promote their just-released album, Twin Cinema. They played live in downtown Seattle in Washington and the show was broadcast on KEXP-FM. Unfortunately, both Neko Case and Dan Bejar were unable to make this gig."

You might be right, Radiohead had some success from leaked tracks. I am not sure if it was really planned as you have said.

Unlike the Radiohead's case, i think the Strokes' plan is back firing at them. It's not working out. All the songs that were leaked so far sound weak and wimpy and for the first time, people agree that they suck. i never thought i would say this about the strokes.
