The best Strokes song of the year wasn't on the new Strokes record. It was this bedroom-rock gem from guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.'s great EP AHJ. "St. Justice" recalled the Strokes at their most effortlessly easy-on-the-ears, with a thunderbolt bass line, a warm blooping synth melody and lyrics steeped in post-rehab emotional clarity.
