The 10 Best Smiths Covers

smiths cover montage

After hearing a pretty decent cover of “This Charming Band” by Skaters this morning, I decided to add it to my “10 Best Smiths Covers” playlist on Soundcloud. So now there are 11 songs on it.

It includes everyone from Balance and Composure and At The Drive In to Radiohead, Death Cab For Cutie and Owen.

Not included is Jeff Buckely’s stunning cover of ” I know it’s Over” because it’s not on Soundcloud and I can’t upload it due to copyright infringements….

Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard covers Stars’ “Set Yourself on Fire”


Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard has a cover of Stars’ “Set Yourself on Fire” on his soundcloud page, and it is absolutely beautiful. If you’re a fan of either band or if you just love well crafted, chill indiepop, you definitely need to hear it:

He also released an amusing Ol’ Dirty Bastard mashup he just made today, which is totally worth listening to. Bonus!
