It’s been ten years since The Strokes album, Is This It, debuted.

This seminal record catapulted New York City once again to the forefront of rock ‘n’ roll, something we hadn’t experienced since the early days of punk.

Stereogum has compiled a free tribute album celebrating Is This It, featuring such bands as Peter Bjorn and John, Real Estate, Owen Pallett, and the Morning Benders.

Like most tribute albums, the covers are hit or miss, versions of favorite songs worthy of deep praise or intense resentment.

I particularly like Frankie Rose’s rendition of “Soma”.
