The Strokes’ ‘Is This It’ Album Cover Recreated With Socks + More

'Is This It' Sock Cover

– The cover art of the Strokes‘ debut album ‘Is This It’ and the Velvet Underground and  Nico’s iconic self-titled disc are among those recreated with impressive detail using — of all things — socks on the mysterious new Tumblr Famous Album Covers Recreated With My Socks. Which sock cover art is your favorite? [TheFW]

– A new version of the tune ‘Punch Judy’ by Elliott Smith has been released by the late indie icon’s longtime label, Kill Rock Stars. This take, recorded on an electric guitar, is much more upbeat than the acoustic version that originally appeared on his ‘Either/Or’ album. [Death + Taxes]

– Few classic rock bands have influenced some of the biggest indie acts rocking today more than the Kinks — and what a better way to celebrate that fact than by winning their brand new, six disc ‘The Kinks Live at the BBC’ box set? We can’t think of one! [Ultimate Classic Rock]

– Not surprisingly, British singer Ellie Goulding reportedly is indeed working on a new song with her boyfriend, dubstep artist Skrillex — but don’t expect the tune to surface on her upcoming sophomore album, ‘Halcyon.’ No word yet on where the song, which also features Swedish House Mafia, will in fact turn up. [NME]

– Fans of bands like Shearwater and the National, here’s a new one to check out: Minneapolis-based one-man act Dream Brother. For a taste, check out the tune ‘More Islands,’ which he recorded with fellow indie rocker Grant Cutler. [Spinner]
