While it doesn’t quite recapture the magic that Give Up brought my formative years, it is undeniably The Postal Service. For those who don’t know, the boys are back together and touring. They are also re-releasing the Give Up on April 9th and packing it with two unreleased tracks. “Tattered Line of String” is the first of those that I’ve laid ears on.
It’s upbeat, dancey, everything you were used to. Somehow it doesn’t feel quite as immediate as the old stuff, but I wonder if that’s jaded older me talking, or more sophisticated me spewing wisdom? I dunno, you guys decide. Either way, it’s still a decent track. Your mileage may vary.
You can stream it below. There’s also a Subpop uploaded Youtube video of the track. No buy links that I can find, so your MP3 player will just have to wait til April.
Now, get nostalgic!
