Tree (a.k.a. Oliver Tree) just released the video for his cover of Radiohead’s “Karma Police,” which is featured on his debut EP Demons. You can watch the video and stream the EP in its entirety below. Tree’s singing voice can’t quite compare to that of Thom Yorke, but then whose can? What sets his cover apart is the brief verse that he raps and especially his arrangement of the song – a mix of electronic beats and lovely classical strings.

Muruch Editor Vic may not have been fond of Amanda Palmer’s ukulele era, but I’ve been enjoying her performance of popular Radiohead hits on her Magical Ukulele:
Even more awesome is the fact that she brought her ukulele to C-Span.
Amanda’s Ukulele anthem is among the free downloads available from her Soundcloud page.
“The Guacamole Ukulele Song” by Lauren Fairweather and Lena Gabrielle will worm its way into your head and stay there forever. You have been warned:
Here’s Jake Shimabukuro covering Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”:
Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s “Over The Rainbow” is perhaps the most heard Ukulele cover. He was profiled on NPR’s All Things Considered.
Finally, I dare you to sit still during this NPR Tiny Desk Concert from Tune-Yards (mp3).
