LAB002 faired pretty well, so we’re goin’ for round two. More cover songs!

The Offspring track is old school and from their first 7″, ex-JMC covering JMC is amazing, the original versions of the two Wes Eisold covers at the end of Disc A were in previous mixes, some chick is singing on the Forensics track (in case you were as shocked as I was), The Tortoise/BPB collaborative album is all covers and most of them are pretty sweet, the Across Tundras track was on their tour EP (Cortez was also covered by Built To Spill live and that is a must hear, but too long for a mix), and the rest are great too.

You can download a bunch of songs from Australia’s No Through Road here, including covers of Outkast, Palace Brothers and Pavement, all of which are fantastic.

Lucid Media recently upped the soundtrack from the Bob Dylan movie, “I’m Not There,” which features a handful of great Dylan covers by Sonic Youth, Iron & Wine, Jeff Tweedy, The Black Keys, Stephen Malkmus, Yo La Tango, etc…

And if you like The Veils and the Mystic Chords Of Memory tracks, you should check out the Rough Trade album of RT bands covering other RT bands, such as British Sea Power (who has a new EP lined up called Krankenhaus?) covering Galaxie 500, Eastern Lane covering The Feelies, and The Detroit Cobras covering The Srokes. Awesome.

And as if there wasn’t enough hair and testosterone in this post already, here are tribute mixes to two of the more influencial bands in existence, Black Sabbath and The Beatles. Most of the songs came from one of three CD’s (Temporary Residence’s Sabbath “Interpretations and Mutilations,” the infamous Hydra Head 7″ series In These Black Days, or MOJO’s Sgt. Pepper’s tribute), but I slipped some off-shot covers in to stir things up as well.

Black Sabbath – Covers Mix
The Beatles – Covers Mix

  1. Wow… I downloaded this just to hear Funeral Diner covering Rites of Spring. Two bands, at opposite ends of the emo genealogy tree… the result sounds pretty weird.
