Sunday Morning Covers

The Strokes ft Jarvis Cocker - Just What I Needed (The Cars cover)[mp3]
everything you ever dreamed of, and more. I love it when Julian is happy and smiley. "The Jarv" sounds like a dance from the 50's. I like this a helluva lot more than "Two Kinds of Happiness". sorry, Julian. but that's probably the worst song you've ever written. download a zip file of the entire Reading performance HERE

Lightouts – “All I Want / Heroes” (LCD Soundsystem / David Bowie Cover) [mp3]
this sounds like The Killers in their early years.

The Morning Benders - Outlaw Blues (Bob Dylan cover) [mp3]
Chris really nails Bobby's nasally undertones

Grand Lake - The Tourist (Radiohead cover) [mp3]
it's an ambitious move, covering a band like RH, but Grand Lake bring a new meaning to the lyric "slow down"

Editors - Road to Nowhere (Talking Heads cover) [mp3]
I just love this one

this is so funky and psychedelic. I love it.

Tokyo Police Club covering "Under Control" by The Strokes and reggae-fying the hell out of it:
