Sub Pop 20: Iron and Wine reach such great heights
Over the weekend, well Friday and Saturday, Lydia and I got down to Seattle for a few events that had been organized for Sub Pop's 20th Anniversary. The record label that really brought grunge and alternative music to the world in the early '90s was having a two day concert festival and a comedy show. We made the Friday night comedy show, with David Cross and others, and caught some of the first day of music.
One of the acts we did catch was Iron and Wine, who are probably most famous for this cover of "Such Great Heights" by the Postal Service. The song appeared on the Garden State soundtrack and I love both versions. This is the video I recorded of the song. You can catch a recording of The Flight of the Chonchords' "The Humans Are Dead" here [yt].
I'm hoping to get some time to blog more in the next day or two. So take care of yourselves until then.
