Drive XV: A Tribute To Automatic For The People

We couldn’t believe it either, but it’s been 15 years to the week since R.E.M. first released Automatic For The People. So to celebrate the critical and commercial favorite’s decade-and-a-half anniversary, we invited some of our favorite indie rockers — including the Wrens, Rogue Wave, Shout Out Louds, Sara Quin of Tegan & Sara (here joined by Kaki King), Dr. Dog, and Meat Puppets — to contribute to a track-by-track covers compilation. The results are awesome. And you can download the MP3s for free.
