Quickies rounds up new can’t-miss covers. Download ‘em below.

The Submarines re-whet our appetite for The Jesus and Mary Chain covers last week, and Cali folk-rockers Dead Rock West continue the boy-girl duet theme with a threatening, much less romantic “God Help Me.”
MP3: Dead Rock West – God Help Me (The Jesus and Mary Chain cover)

British quartet The Milk just released their debut single last week and, as their Essex countrymen might say, it’s a corker! Check out their heavy soul-rock vamp through an old Toots and the Maytals reggae groove.
MP3: The Milk – 54-46 That’s My Number (Toots & the Maytals cover)

WeHaveLove are a Swedish electropop quartet that first pointed us to their covers last December. We never managed to slot them in, but with their new Lionel Richie cut, it was time.
MP3: WeHaveLove – All Night Long (Lionel Richie cover)
MP3: WeHaveLove – I Go to Sleep (The Kinks cover)
MP3: WeHaveLove – Glad to Be Gay (Tom Robinson cover)

Anni Rossi’s “Rude Boy” comes a bit after the Rihanna hit’s popularity has faded, but the time crafting this was well spent. Careful pop production with plenty of soul and a hook delivery that won’t leave your head for days.
MP3: Anni Rossi – Rude Boy (Rihanna cover)

That not enough pop covers for ya? Here’s two more absolutely storming jams. If Duran Duran took on Nelly Furtado
MP3: When We Were 21 – Maneater (Nelly Furtado cover)
