Now, with his third record Momentary Masters on the way, Hammond Jr. is visiting the Islington Assembly Hall. Expect the smooth, clean riffs that characterized his band’s early work, but with a gentler, more introspective edge that evokes the classic pop songwriting of Elvis Costello and Spoon. His is a taut, back-to-basics rock, of the sort that can win over devoted admirers with its earnest vocals and hummable melodies. When the dust from the Strokes gradual implosion has settled, it looks likely to be Hammond Jr. who carries the torch for their instantly recognisable sound.
