What is the sound of one Stroke clapping? The group’s frontman is the latest band member? to seek solo-projectdom, and the result, Phrazes for the Young, sounds, well, not unlike the Strokes. Casablancas forsakes the group’s fuzz-rock purism, however, for more varied — if still retro — pursuits, as on the groovy Casio boogaloo ”11th Dimension.” In the end, deliberately(?) tinny tracks such as ”Glass” sound like sketches in search of a full band. Hopefully, said band will soon oblige. B-
