TIIF (The ‘Strokes’ One) – 2020.07.31



On July 30, 2001, the Strokes debut album, Is This It, was unleashed in Australia. The sound of the record was described as ‘a band from the past that took a trip to the future to make the record’. Most of the songs were recorded in one take. The result was a raw, lo-fi album with very little studio production. It eventually took the world by storm at the the height of DJ culture and electronic dance music. All the cool kids sold their turntables to buy guitars. What followed was an exceptional few years of Indie music. This week’s playlist contains some of my favorite tracks from that period. I hope you enjoy it. Have a great bank holiday weekend!
