Download: Stereogum’s ‘Stroked’ Covers Album

    As they have done with OK Computer, Automatic for the People and Bjork’s Post, Stereogum has commissioned a tribute album to the Strokes’ Is This It, called Stroked, that features a cadre of indie acts covering all of the tracks from Is This It. You can download it over here. Highlights? By far the best is Heems’ interpretation of “New York City Cops,” in which he goes wild rapping about people who were beaten or killed by New York City cops. Morning Benders’ cover of “Last Night” is second, followed by Peter Bjorn and John’s “Is This It,” followed by Real Estate’s “Barely Legal.” It’s hard to believe that Is This It? is 10 years old already.
