Now That's What I Call Indie Covers!

MP3s of indie bands covering well-known songs; includes covers of Whitney Houston, Kylie Minogue, ABBA, Ace of Base and various R&B/rap artists, by the likes of The Flaming Lips, The Mountain Goats, Belle & Sebastian, and some bloke named Ben Gibbard who gets featured twice. Interesting that they have covers of REM and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but omit covers of The Smiths and Talking Heads.

Ben Gibbard is the lead for Death Cab for Cutie and half of The Postal Service. Death Cab does at least one Smiths cover that I can remember, actually.

On another note, the Mull Historical Society once did a cover of Ms Dynamite's "It Takes More" for a live session on the BBC (or maybe it was a single B-side, I dunno).
