The last album I listened to before leaving New York yesterday morning was the Strokes’ Is This It, which remains one of this decade’s crowning achievements as well as a consummately New York album. It was a fitting end to a fantastic summer; now, I’d like to kick off my return to the West Coast with Ryan Adams covering the band’s “Last Nite.” And, uh, Madonna. I’m slowly amassing live Ryan covers for a series of posts like the ones I did for Elliott Smith, so if you have any good ones, send them my way.
