Amanda Palmer Gets The Bends, Records Radiohead Covers


Amanda Palmer, formerly of The Dresden Dolls, is releasing an album of Radiohead covers in July. Ambitious, no? Her first selection? “Idioteque” from Kid A. We'd certainly never heard a ukulele-driven version of this dense track. The song remains surprisingly foreboding even when played on an instrument favored by generations of Hawaiian Airport greeters. It's streaming on Palmer's website and available for download at a minimum of 40-cents to pay Yorke his due. Listen here. (Via Spinner)
