FREE STUFF: Hear The Strokes get their ego ”Stroked” with tribute album ”Stroked” (zzzzing)

174

Woop woop, it’s the sound of the old news police. Coming at you like a speeding freight train loaded with stale but not quite moldy news. So what’s on the metaphor train, Jack? It’s Stereogum and their affectionate, moderately star filled tribute album to The Strokes “Is This It?”, taking each and every track from their seminal début long player with disappointingly not-played-by-The-Strokes equivalents courtesy of musicians running the gamut all the way from “who?” to “Oh yeah, that’s pretty cool”. Want a track listing? You got it.

Someday – Wise Blood
Alone, Together – Austra
