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).

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
