Stroked! A Tribute To Is This It

26 Jul

I’ll be honest, I wasn’t the first to The Strokes party, I actually didn’t come to appreciate Is This It till years after it was released. Also I feel anyone who wears the vintage Strokes t-shirt may be a douche bag.

Anyways… we’re coming up on the 10 year anniversary of the release of Is This It, and Stereogum has thrown together a tribute to the album which features 11 artists that each tackle a track and add their own person spin to it.

Owen Pallett gives an amazing rendition of Hard To Explain, the only track you’ll recognize if you aren’t familiar with The Strokes. But you should download it for Heems cover of New York City Cops.
