The Morning Benders – Excuses (with ukulele)

Coffee shops and small halls are filled with ‘cover bands’ specializing in reproducing classic rock hits and songs that your parents used to love. However, indie cover bands are exceedingly rare — especially attic-based ones that provide arguably higher quality recordings than the original song.

And for something slightly less serious, here’s Katy Perry – Hot N Cold

This version has convinced me that Katy Perry should sing with an Eastern European accent from now on.

And for the legion of post-rock fans:

if Katy Perry's whole album was in that style I think I would have it as a strong 5 rating

thank you Downer, I was going to flip if that video wasn't included. His Explosions in the Sky - Your Hand in Mine cover is equally impressive (how he plays all three parts in one, basically), but the Godspeed is fucking PERFECT.

The bare crossed legs and the head scarf are a bit bizarre

There's a really good video where a supposedly homeless guy plays/sings Radiohead's "Creep." Definitely worth a look.
