The Wrens -- The Seventh Stranger
Speaking of Wrens covers, you totally want this one too, from the Germs tribute album.
The Wrens -- Let's Pretend
Matthew Sweet had a track on that one too...
Matthew Sweet -- Dragon Lady
Speaking of disappointments (wait, was I?), guess I'm not getting a copy of that Mountain Goats Babylon Springs EP -- it's already sold out. Luckily, the Interschnitzel provideth, and I want for nothing but a hard copy. The entire thing is amazing, but this song -- though not an original JD creation, but a pretty straightforward (if slightly country-fied) Trembling Blue Stars cover -- hit me squarely in the gut this morning. Still feel the bruise, indeed.

(BTW, I'm getting lots of spam comments; any thoughts on how to deal with these without screening comments? I guess there isn't really any other way, huh?)
