Nikolai Solo Project  
Thanks to Swedish girl @ Hard To Explain forum for this information

Ok so I was completely unaware of this but Nikolai is doing a solo project, called Nickel Eye! (lolz best name ever), the album will be released in the fall and its called The Time of the Assassins.

Some more info

Nikolai plays all the instruments (on Dying Star at least) except the drums and guitar
Nick Zinner (of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs) plays guitar on Dying Star

The songs were played on Mark Ronson's radio show, and here are the rips (has some of Mark talking over it)

Dying Star

Brandy Of The Damned

Woah, I had no idea, I thought he meant just over the internet or something on thestrokes.com

Is that Nikolai singing, though?
