I want a really great and stunning camera for my birthday BUT my band mates want me to get that drumset, my friends want me to get COD6 with an xbox, and this one person wants me to take her somewhere amazing. sigh*
Well, technically this is Casey Dienel before she took on the band name White Hinterland, but I retroactively tagged all my Casey Dienel mp3s as White Hinterland so I’m rolling with that. Anyway, this is by far my favorite Pavement recording that I’ve ever heard. The piano arrangement is terrific, and she nails the essence of the song while being entirely true to her own distinct personality. You can get the entire Daytrotter session from which this is taken here.
