A pair of winning Talking Heads covers came through the pipeline in the past few days so, despite the fact that the bands and sound couldn’t be much less similar, we’re tossing ‘em both at you together. First up, the Ting Tings performed a raving, spastic version of “Once in a Lifetime” on the BBC Live Lounge. “One of the best songs ever written” they say at the start of the funky, too-brief cover. Stream it below.

Then, the Rosebuds turned their poppy dream-folk sound to “Road to Nowhere.” The blissful, lush performance is a free download, the first in a Bandcamp album called “Covers” we hope to see expanded soon. Download it below.
