It’s been 10 years since New York rich kids The Strokes delivered their debut LP Is This It. To celebrate, Stereogum has asked a bunch of awesome indie artists to cover each track from the record in their own special way.
The tribute sees the likes of Swedish indie trio Peter Bjorn and John, Real Estate, Austra, The Morning Benders and Canadian mulit-instrumentalist Owen Pallett contributing – check out the 11 reworked album tracks below:
