July is becoming a big month for free anniversary full-album tributes. Last week SPIN gave us their tribute to Nirvana, and today Stereogum surprises us with Stroked, a collection of covers from the Strokes’ game-changing debut Is This It. Eleven indie icons and upstarts cover every song on the album, just as they did with Radiohead’s OK Computer.
Quickies rounds up new can’t-miss covers. Download ‘em below.
• Brooklyn electropop musician Computer Magic has built a following with earworm tunes and unbeatable videos (here’s the most recent). She took a break from recording her debut album to upload this thumping John Lennon cover to her website.
