STROKES - IS THIS IT Vinyl LP
Is This It is the debut studio album by American rock band the Strokes, first released on July 30, 2001, through Rough Trade Records and RCA Records. It was recorded at Transporterraum in New York City with producer Gordon Raphael during March and April 2001. For their debut, the band strived to capture a simple sound that was not significantly enhanced in the studio. Building on their 2001 EP The Modern Age, the band members molded compositions largely through live takes during recording sessions, while songwriter and lead singer Julian Casablancas continued to detail the lives and relationships of urban youth.
