Not more than five minutes after hitting the “publish” button on the latest post, I notice an e-mail about a cover of Radiohead’s latest, The King of Limbs, by the LA indie pop band, Robotanists. They recorded the cover album within 24 hours of its electronic release. Are they capitalizing on something? Sure…
Is it any good? I’ve only had one time fully through it, and it’s pretty good for such a quick turn around, and its free too. I really enjoy their takes on Lotus Flower, Give Up the Ghost, and Separator.

Robotanists just released their third album and will be playing several shows in Austin for SXSW. You can pick up their new single for free, On/Off the Ledge, and stream the album Plans in Progress while you’re at it.
