Song of the Week: “A Tattered Line of String” by The Postal Service

“A Tattered Line of String” is the new track on the rerelease of The Postal Service 2003 album Give Up, although you can be forgiven for thinking the song is from 1983 instead.  I can imagine hearing this song between tracks by the Human League and The Pet Shop Boys.  Lead singer Ben Gibbard is also known for his work with Death Cab for Cutie.  Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley provides backup vocals.
