The Strokes' drummer's side project, Little Joy: An EW video exclusive

Strokes superfans who threatened to hold their breath until the louche New York rockers followed up their last record, 2006’s First Impressions of Earth, either asphyxiated months ago, or (happier result all around) have turned their attention to Little Joy – drummer Fabrizio Moretti’s excellent, L.A.-based side project-cum-main-gig with Los Hermanos guitarist Rodrigo Amarante over the last year or two.

And though the the former band’s MySpace page now promises they’re hard at work in the studio, we’re happy to keep steeping ourselves in the sunny, lo-fi jangle of LJ’s self-titled debut from late last year — and specifically, the new video we’ve got for Music Mix readers exclusively here; it’s like a two-and-a-half-minute Brazilian vacation, minus the passport hassles and duty-free bug spray. Watch it below:
