Check it out: Cool mixtapes already made for you
A couple years ago I bought a copy of MoJo magazine that I can't say I read, but it did have a cool CD included called "Revolver Reloaded." It was a bunch of bands covering the famous Beatles album. My favorite was a version of "Here, There and Everywhere" by Belarus that I've listened to at least a thousand times more than the Fab Four version.
Given this penchant for weird/great covers, I was delighted to see the mixtape edition on Tsururadio's blog with a full lineup of new song takes. From The Smiths' "Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want" by the Autumns to Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" by F.S. Merriwether. Listen to it here.
The playlist is one of several mixtapes the music collective (whose leader is from Columbus, but whose contributors hail from Michigan to Germany) has been posting throughout the week on its website, tsururadio.com.
