Listen to Amanda Palmer Perform Radiohead's "Idioteque"

Courtesy of NPR, you can hear Amanda Palmer (late of the Dresden Dolls) cover Radiohead's "Idioteque."

"This is why some braced themselves for Dresden Dolls frontwoman Amanda Palmer's latest escapade: a whole album of covers — and Radiohead covers, no less. Palmer self-released the short work, titled Amanda Palmer Plays the Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele, in July. All obligatory skepticism aside, the songs are vivid and endearing. She does "Creep," "Fake Plastic Trees" and "No Surprises," among others. That might not sound too exciting, but Palmer's raw, confident delivery makes these reinterpretations worthwhile."
