of Montreal covers Prince, gets covered.

For their tribute album to Prince's Purple Rain, Spin got 9 current artists to cover each one of the original songs. of Montreal got (or chose) Computer Blue (live version downloadable from the Sasquatch! set).
The great thing about "Purplish Rain" is that it is free for Spin readers and subscribers (and people with no qualms about cheating) on the magazine's website right now.
If you want to compare it to virtually every cover the band has ever played, point your compasses to You Ain't No Picasso, where Matt has been building a comprehensive archive of oM covers. Hats off!

The Vitamin String Quartet recorded an orchestral version of Everyday Feels Like Sunday on their new compilation. The 15-track album comprises The New Pornographers' Bleeding Heart Show, Animal Collective's Banshee Beat, among other indie favorites. The result is an ear-pleasing album that could be just the job when you're inviting the in-laws over for lunch. Buy it from Vitamin Records.
