Friday Live Covers (Medicated Geniuses Edition)

Ben Gibbard – “Thriller”
I know I posted this one before, but Cameron alerted me that last week’s NME (Streets cover) printed the URL! So, here you go British fanboys: Death Cab’s lead Cutie doing a morose MJ tribute. An apropos addition to today’s impending media circus.

They Might Be Giants – “Caroline No”
A pretty faithful take on the Pet Sounds closer. It’s off the Johns’ new EP Indestructible Object. Haven’t listened to TMBG since John Henry; this track makes me wonder if I’ve been missing out?
