Amanda Palmer Releasing EP of Radiohead Covers: Check Out Idioteque Here

Here's reason number 7,082 why Amanda Palmer is awesome: The Dresden Dolls frontwoman is celebrating her victory over Roadrunner Records with an EP of Radiohead covers played on ukulele.

The songs were recorded in Australia after she learned how to play the mini-guitar "as a joke" to do a memorable cover of Radiohead's "Creep" at a pal's benefit for Iranian punk musicians, the clip of which went viral.

The EP is titled Amanda Palmer Plays The Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele , and has a kitschy album cover to match. Tracks include "Idioteque" (the first single, available now via Bandcamp and posted below), "Creep", "No Surprises", "High and Dry", "Fake Plastic Trees" and a version of "Exit Music (For a Film)" for piano and string quartet recorded live at The Sydney Opera House.

You can get the record here.
