Compilation features The Strokes, Interpol...

from the ever resourceful Pitchfork.......


NY Comp to Include Strokes, Interpol, Ted Leo
Shocking nation by not holding Leo's Jersey heritage against him
Nikhil Swaminathan reports:
New York City is finally celebrating its musical supremacy over the rest of the country (hush, Omaha and Lawrence-- go play with your John Deeres) with the release of a compilation album that lumps together some of the hippest and uniformly credible acts of the city (save Liars, who must have been over the height cutoff). The 15-track disc will be released on Vice Records imprint Wolfgang Morden on June 2nd and was executive produced by the non-native duo Chris White and Brian Long. The two released a short statement as to their motivations with compiling the LP:
"As transplants to New York, we had spent a decade watching the New York rock scene kinda suck with too many Heartbreaker wannabes and noisy sound-alikes. In the spring of [2002] the 'scene' seemed to crystallize. Suddenly there were a lot of really interesting rock bands happening RIGHT NOW-- and they didn't all sound the same."
Among the chosen is The Strokes' apparently formerly controversial track "New York City Cops"; anointing the song an Eminem-like "get out of jail for your indecency" card, a live version recorded at a show in Iceland will lead off the CD. Bookending the disc with The Strokes is an acoustic version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' "Our Time" performed by one of the band's early incarnations-- a collaboration between Yeahs singer Karen O and guitarist Nick Zinner called Unitard.
The album goes by the name of Yes New York, a take off on Brian Eno's 1978 no wave compilation that was the direct opposite of this sentiment (No New York, for you slow ones). The rest of the list is compelling enough as to require that our entire staff be fitted with splatter-proof shields. You've got Ted Leo/Pharmacists, Interpol, Secret Machines, Radio 4, Calla, and The Walkmen. Tracklist:
01 The Strokes: New York City Cops (live)
02 Radio 4: Save Your City
03 The Rogers Sisters: Zero Point
04 Ted Leo/Pharmacists: The Ballad of the Sin Eater
05 The Fever: Ladyfingers
06 Longwave: Next Plateau
07 Calla: Strangler
08 The Rapture: Olio
09 The Walkmen: Rue the Day
10 Interpol: NYC
11 The Natural History: The Right Hand
12 LCD Soundsystem: Tired
13 Le Tigre: Deception (DFA remix)
14 The Secret Machines: What Used to Be French
15 Unitard (Yeah Yeah Yeahs): Our Time (acoustic)
