What do you get one you combine the most comical of musical instruments (the ukelele) with the music of the world’s greatest band (Radiohead) and a self-confessed ukelelehead who also happens to be a fine cabaret singer/performer (Amanda Palmer from Dresden Dolls). You get a 7-track EP of Radiohead cover songs titled Amanda Palmer Performs The Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele.
Palmer’s four-string concept album has been released today: a tight edit of Radiohead tunes stripped back Hawaiian luau-style; and despite that in theory it could have been fantastically shite it’s actually a real treat.
The will be available digitally and on a limited edition vinyl release available exclusively from the AmandaPalmer.net store, but you can preview the entire album:
1.Fake Plastic Trees 05:22
2.High And Dry 04:10
3.No Surprises 03:44
5.Creep (Hungover at Soundcheck in Berlin) 04:41
6.Exit Music (For A Film) 05:17
