The Strokes Playlist Special

It has been 10 years since The Strokes released their seminal album, This Is It? - and after Stereogum released a free cover version of the album for you to download, it seemed only right to build a playlist around the New York band with your help. We go through an awesome journey which included some of The Strokes' best tracks, Lou Reed, The Hives and Interpol.

With the latest digital music news is also rounded up by Tom, with tracks from Noel Gallagher, Azari & III and Fountains of Wayne, and he delves into what people are listening on Twitter - with fantastic results. Blogs 4clubbers and Drunken Werewolf also recommend some music to us - including one of the latest acts James Murphy has picked up for his DFA label. Tom also gives you all you need to know about the last seven days in digital music through the digital digest and you can find out 6 Music's pick of music related nuggets to listen to and watch in #nowviewing and #nowstreaming.
