Radiohead Covers New Order, Bjork, the Smiths



Those wacky Radiohead kids did a live webcast yesterday of new songs and choice covers. Snag a bunch of these MP3s at Gorilla Vs. Bear; BrooklynVegan has a ton of links to other places with multimedia.

The Smiths cover is "The Headmaster Ritual," and it's insane how much Thom Yorke sounds like Morrissey; the New Order cover of "Ceremony" is actually better I think, however. Either way, it's totally strange to hear Yorke singing almost straightforwardly, in a non-strangled voice.
