So this is really cool: A Tribute to REM's classic album, Automatic for the People, by, featuring such artists as the Shout Out Louds, the Figures, the Meat Puppets, and Dr. Dog (whoever they are).

I haven't actually listened to it yet (cause I'm at work and busy as always), but I will later tonight!

Stereogum did a tribute to Radiohead's OK Computer about a month ago that was cool, but not the best music ever. Interesting, but not memorable. Here's hoping this one's better.

The only band I've heard here before is Meat Puppets, which I never got into.

REM's Automatic is such a great album, this is a tuff one to pull off.

I think these bands did a good job:

Rogue Wave 'the sidewinder sleeps tonight'

Figurines 'New Orleans Instrumental No.1'

Sara Quin performs an interesting version of this great song, 'Sweetness Follows'

The Forms do a very funky 'Ignore Land'


Dr. Dog - kind of 60's ish, with 'Find the River'. I like it a lot, this one is my favorite.
