Stereogum has unveiled STROKED: A Tribute To Is This It. The album is a collection of covers of each of the tracks from the original album done by current indie artists such as Peter Bjorn and John, Real Estate, Austra, the morning benders, and Heems.  While we may not agree that The Strokes are entitled to a tribute album yet, these artists feel they have been influenced by The Strokes, but more specifically the album, Is This It.

“I am on a voyage of discovery. I search for those of you who will go on a great adventure . . . if you are one of those audacious few willing to dare and then to share . . . then come with me.”

~ William Danforth (May 13, 1867 – April 16, 1941)
