Stereogum has put up a covers compilation album called OKX: A Tribute to OK Computer where they asked various artists to record a song from the legendary OK Computer album.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Radiohead’s OK Computer we’ve asked some of our favorite musicians to participate in a song-by-song covers compilation. Indicative of the album’s continued importance, each invitee jumped at the chance; the results are personal, intense, tellingly various. Slow down, dig in, enjoy. But note: we did this all legal and everything, so we can’t keep these up forever…get ’em before someone else does. Ambition makes you look pretty.
Here’s the tracklist:
Doveman – “Airbag”
Slaraffenland – “Paranoid Android”
Mobius Band – “Subterranean Homesick Alien”
Vampire Weekend – “Exit Music (For a Film)”
David Bazan’s Black Cloud – “Let Down”
John Vanderslice – “Karma Police”
Samson Dalonoga feat. The Found Sound Orchestra – “Fitter Happier”
Cold War Kids – “Electioneering”
The Twilight Sad – “Climbing Up the Walls”
