The Cure, scattered, smothered, covered.

This week’s NME magazine comes with a bonus disc featuring covers of everybody’s favorite goth band, the Cure.

If Robert Smith and co. are for you, you might want to pick up a copy. That’s if you’re feeling cheerful enough to leave the house.

British Sea Power, The Futureheads, Art Brut, and Dinosaur Jr. all take turns donning the pancake makeup of gloom.

Click here to hear cuts from the Mystery Jets (“In Between Days”), Metronomy (“Fascination Street”), and the Big Pink (“Love Song”).

Also, Stereogum has an MP3 of Smith’s spoken intro, dishing on the nature cover songs, and sounding for all the world like a placid BBC news reporter. Check it out here.
