It’s our first episode about an album from the current century! Still, we’re going way back to 2001 to talk about the much-hyped, much-loved first full-length from the Strokes, Is This It. We gently discuss whether this and other albums of its vintage are now “retro” and revisit how well them there NYC bands from 2000-2010 have aged. Cam and Sammy also each talk about individual encounters with various Strokes (spoiler: Fab and Albert, respectively) and whether the Strokes ACTUALLY sounded like the Velvet Underground. We close with some heavy randomness by talking about Concrete Blonde, the Traveling Wilburys and Grizzly Bear.
