"And I'm walking out from between parked cars with my head full of stars." - elliot smith

I would feel negligent not to mark the passing of Elliot Smith, whose number "St. Ides Heaven" is one of my very favorites. His death is sad. Note to live-in girlfriend who found Smith's body, which apparently was sporting a self-inflicted stab wound to the chest: don't leave this guy home alone with the cutlery. Oh well. The self-titled album is superlative, as is Either/Or. I will have to give them some spins this week.

Speaking of spins, is there a legit release of Iron & Wine's cover of The Postal Service's "Such Great Heights"? I caught the number on the radio on Monday and it really got under my skin. Really good stuff. That's all for now.
