If you’re a regular reader of this site, then you probably have a pretty high opinion of Is This It (understatement of the century, I know).
Stereogum shares in that sentiment, as the popular music website has put together 11 different artists to cover all 11 of the tracks on Is This It. The bands on the cover album include Peter Bjorn & John (Is This It), The Morning Benders (Last Nite) and Chelsea Wolfe (The Modern Age).
Check out the entire tribute here and download the covers at your own peril. For me, the thought of Peter Bjorn & John making Is This It a Peter Bjorn & John song makes me want to gag.
Update: The Morning Benders’ cover of Last Nite is quality. The Soma cover is pretty good and H2E is really interesting because of what Pallett wrote in the liner notes. But Someday is a digital abortion and NYCC just says “fuck the police” a couple of times and that’s apparently a Strokes cover. OK. Updated
