Ten Years of the Strokes

I enjoyed this Pitchfork article, This is It: Ten Years of the Strokes. Their first record was a really seminal album in 21st century music. You can still see its effects in Urban Outfitters-clad dance rock. I love this insight from their first producer Gordon Raphael on how to make a record sound different:

Everyone was using Pro Tools and digital technology, tripling the snare drum and adding samples to make things 25 stories tall. So I thought: ‘What could be the opposite of that? How about I record the band playing together in one room?’
