AUSTIN, Texas - Rick Ross had come to South by Southwest, as indeed he goes most places, to boast. "I just celebrated my fifth No. 1 album," the Miami rapper said Saturday night at the Fader Fort. Last week, Ross's so-so "Mastermind" debuted atop the Billboard 200, beating out competition that included Pharrell Williams' heavily promoted "G I R L" and the Oscar-winning "Frozen" soundtrack. The record, he wrote on Twitter before the show, "contains only the highest grade of execution.

Let's get this settled right out of the gate: Julian Casablancas, frontman of the New York neo-garage band the Strokes, has not moved to L.A. "Not officially," he says, nursing a Coke at Silver Lake's Red Lion Tavern. "But I'm here for like two months, and I've gotta say, man -- I'm starting to kind of get sold on it." The singer's current West Coast stay isn't his first; he spent several months here last year working with producer Jason Lader on his solo debut, "Phrazes for the Young."

The reaction on Twitter to the new Strokes single has not been especially good. In fact, opinions of "One Way Trigger," which appeared on the band's website Friday, seem to be tending almost entirely toward the negative. "aaaaahhh!! just listened to new strokes song called 'One waytrigger' and its veeeeeeery.................. bad," wrote one user early Saturday, while another said , "i am a strokes fan, but dont think im a huge fan of one way trigger. " Even the positive(-ish)

There were times Saturday during the Strokes' show at the Arrowhead Pond in Anaheim when you wished the New York quintet might have channeled some of the go-for-broke abandon of the evening's opening act, the Eagles of Death Metal. At the same time, EODM's riff-heavy set would have benefited greatly from a jolt of melody and forward thrust of the Strokes' best songs.

JULIAN CASABLANCAS is getting tired of people asking him where he's going. And he doesn't mean Madrid, his destination this day as he navigates the Milan airport, in the middle of a hectic European jaunt of press sessions and club shows to advance Tuesday's release of the Strokes' third album, "First Impressions of Earth." Rather, the singer-songwriter is frustrated with questions about his band's larger direction, its ambition and goals. Its mission.

The Strokes "First Impressions of Earth" (RCA) * * * IT just seems all wrong that the Strokes opened the door for the White Stripes and Franz Ferdinand and the rest of the current crop of world-class rock upstarts. It's somehow backward, as if the Monkees had paved the way for the Beatles.

What do you get when you combine Frank Ocean, Diplo and two former members of the Clash? A nifty new song -- and some Internet hype for a youth-attuned shoemaker. Released Monday as a free download , "Hero" is the latest installment in Converse's "Three Artists. One Song" promotion, which previously teamed Julian Casablancas, Pharrell Williams and Santigold, as well as Best Coast, Kid Cudi and Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, among others. (Evidently this time the company is counting Mick Jones and Paul Simonon -- each of whom has built his own career since his days in the Clash -- as one artist.)
