The folks over at http://www.neworderonline.com are putting together a New Order tribute cd and they’ve reached the final voting stage. There are almost 40 different New Order-related covers vying for inclusion on the disc done in all sorts of styles and degrees of quality and all of which can be streamed from the site. You won’t be able to vote if you haven’t previously registered with the site, but I think you can still listen.
Things that have caught my ear are the cover of “Run” done in the style of Vince Clarke, the guitar pop version of “We All Stand” and the stomping version of “586,” but my favorite track comes from EGN’s own DJ Introvert and his projects cover of Electronic’s “Some Distant Memory.” The man has skills. To check out the songs just go to the site and click on the “Community” link on the top left of the page.
