Blog Gives Away Free Radiohead Covers
that don't suck! Stereogum, the venerable Sufjan-loving (and, in the interest of full disclosure, me-tolerating) music blog, has put together a song-by-song covers album of Radiohead's 1997 masterpiece OK Computer, and made all the tracks available for free. Even rival site Pitchfork seems to like the new versions, performed by artists like Doveman, Cold War Kids, and The Twilight Sad. Head over to the "OKX: A Tribute to OK Computer" page to grab the mp3s and see what the artists had to say about them. My recommendations? SF favorite John Vanderslice's synthy update of "Karma Police" (mp3), and Marissa Nadler & Black Hole Symphony's breathy take on "No Surprises" (mp3).
