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

Periodically, Wavves’ Nathan Williams gets high and records covers for Twitter. Last time it was Sonic Youth; this time it’s the Misfits. The song is “Hybrid Moments” and the length, not coincidentally, is 1:38.

Sydney songwriter Liz Martin recorded this jazz-pop David Bowie cover for recent album Dance a Little, Live a Little and just shared it with us in honor of Bowie’s 65th birthday last week. It swings and sashays and features a male vocal part from local artist Mr. Percival.

Alt-rock icons Starflyer 59 have inspired their own tribute album – or at least, tribute 10”. Colorado dream-poppers Candy Claws tackle “Do You Ever Feel That Way?” for their half and you can pick up the vinyl here.

Tim Hardin’s “If I Were A Carpenter” was first recorded by Bobby Darin and has been covered by hundreds since. In the past few decades, though, it seems to have lost popularity. Perhaps songs featuring propositions like “Would you have my baby?” don’t have the romantic ring they used to.

Jordan says: “I have long maintained that Van Halen’s song Jump is actually a clarion call to suicide, despite the fact that it is clearly not true. Well, now I’ve recorded a cover version as though it were.”
