Albert Hammond Jr.
Albert Louis Hammond, Jr. (born April 9, 1980) is an American musician and member of the indie rock band The Strokes, in which he primarily plays guitar, but also plays keyboards live. He is also a solo musician. His father, Albert Hammond, whose career was primarily in the 1960s and 1970s, had even greater success on the singles charts as a songwriter and occasional singer. Hammond, Jr. released his debut album Yours To Keep in 2006 and followed up with ¿Cómo Te Llama? in 2008. The Beach Boys, Buddy Holly, Frank Black, Guided By Voices, John Lennon, Matthew Sweet and The Velvet Underground are often cited as his major influences.
The Frights’ birth in December 2012, was an accident that now unites moms worldwide. One mom in San Diego has called the band, “Great! A fun mix of the rock n’ roll I used to love with the 50’s sounds MY mom used to love!” Another mom in Los Angeles praises the band, saying, “I hire a babysitter to go to all their shows. They just have so much youthful energy, they make me feel young too!”
Moms everywhere enjoy the band’s two self-produced EPs, their one full-length record, and even their split EP and singles, embarrassing their sons and daughters with their enthusiasm toward a band that is at least half, sometimes a third, of their age. Some of their most popular songs among moms include “Beach Porn,” “Crust Bucket,” and “Makeout Point.”
Ostensibly, The Frights are great for long drives in a Honda Odyssey. Their second full-length was produced by FIDLAR’s Zac Carper and will be released soon.
