Six Degrees of The Postal Service’s Give Up

By Jon Dolan, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not.

They Say All Music Guide

Such Great Heights is a single by Sub Pop electro-poppers Postal Service with a great idea behind it. Listeners get the best song from the full-length record, “Such Great Heights”; a strong non-album track, “There’s Never Enough Time”; and two bands playing covers of Postal Service songs. The Shins sparkle on their version of “We Will Become Silhouettes” and Iron and Wine plays a positively stunning rendition of “Such Great Heights.” Both bands strip away Postal Service’s new wave electronics and play the songs straight, the Shins with their typical ramshackle verve and Iron and Wine with Sam Beam’s haunting vocals and British folk-style guitars. A worthy purchase for fans of the three bands and for all indie kids. – Tim Sendra
