The Strokes – Is This It (New Vinyl) (Original Album Art)



New sealed copy. 2020 reissue with the original International album art.

Is This It is the debut studio album by American rock band the Strokes. It was first released on July 30, 2001, in Australia, with RCA Records handling the release internationally and Rough Trade Records handling the United Kingdom release. 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.

Three singles were released from the album: "Hard to Explain" (backed with "New York City Cops"), "Last Nite", and "Someday".
