I’ve wanted to go to Coachella for a while, and I was erring on the side of caution, but when I heard The Strokes were headlining I WAS BOOKING MY FLIGHT LIKE A SHOT. Is This It is one of THE BEST ALBUMS OF ALL TIME.
So I went, and danced to The Strokes under the California night sky with some of my dearest friends. It was incredible.
Also one of the best album covers of all time.
If you can believe it, Is This It is now 10 years old. Stereogum have assembled some of the finest indie artists out there to record tribute covers of Is This It. Aptly named “Stroked” – the album features Peter, Bjorn & John on the title track (verdict: jangly), Heems spitting bars on ‘New York City Cops’ and Owen Pallett putting piano and strings to ‘Hard to Explain’ amongst others.
