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

You probably know Kele better as Kele Okereke, lead singer of Bloc Party. While the band takes a break/resolves reported internal tensions, Kele is releasing a solo EP called The Hunter. It includes this bangin’ cover.
MP3: Kele – Goodbye Horses (Q Lazzarus cover)

To honor the departed R.E.M., Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin threw together a warts-and-all cover of Reckoning kickoff “Harborcoat.” It’s a bedroom recording that gets back to the band’s D.I.Y. roots.

Small Black’s Josh Kolenik: “It’s always amazing to hear songs that you write in a totally new context. Loved the way El May brought out the lyrics in a way that’s obscured in our original recording, and the production is pristine.”
MP3: El May – Pleasant Experience (Small Black cover)

Adelaide duo Collarbones released this electro R&B jam in preparation for a cover set at a local club. With luck, they’ll release more such covers to add to your Sexxytime Lovers’ Mix.
MP3: Collarbones – Yamaha (The-Dream cover)

Though never a proper single, “Sea Song” may be Robert Wyatt’s best-known song thanks to covers by Tears for Fears and Rachel Unthanks and the Winterset. Now, British composer Simon Bookish adds a tender piano performance to the mix.
