The Strokes Nikolai Fraiture teams up with Ronson.

The Strokes bassist cannot sing, he cannot perform anyway near as confidently as fellow Julian Casablancs- but Nikolai Fraiture sure knows how to pick a mean collaboration.  Nickel Eye’s debut album The Time of the Assassin’s’ features guest appearance from the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Nick Zinner (guitar on “This Is the End”) and Regina Spektor (piano on “Where the Cold Wind Blows”) no less.

 

With its warm liturgical organs, plangent Africa ‘70-type horns, and Ronson’s cool but uncharacteristically deadpan production, Shakey Times has been loving ‘Brandy of the Damned’.

I can't sing to save my life - But hey!? Who needs to when you're 'A Stroke with Ronson on your side'.
