The Single may only be composed of 4 only tracks, but they are all exceptional in both choice and order. The Postal Service here have started the Single with 2 tracks of their own followed by 2 tracks written by them, but performed by The Shins and Iron & Wine, both producing magnificent covers arguably better than the originals or if not certainly complementary.

"Such Great Heights" is performed here by both The Postal Service and Iron & Wine, giving you the clever idea of an electro pop version of the song followed by a soft acoustic version, contrasting greatly. The result as you may not expect from 2 clashing generes, is the electro-pop version proving refreshing and the acoustic version heart-wrenching in its composition.

The remaining 2 tracks on the album do not dissappoint or lower the standard however, both giving the Single another dose of electro pop and another variance in genres, by The Shins indie feel. In 4 tracks the Single manages to gracefully combine 3 genres and provide a bonafied bargain considering the high quality of all of the tracks on merely a Single. Highly Recommended for all, and even if the aforementioned genres are not appealing to you as an individual, for the price, it is certaninly worth a listen regardless.

For all those that are wondering, track 4 of this single is the one used on the atmospheric Ask.com TV advert. The one with the baloons and coppers etc...filmed in New Zealand apparently.

Hit indie band Postal Service is a marriage of trip-hop and indie-rock's melancholy. And nowhere is that better shown than in "Such Great Heights," one of the most likable songs from the debut album "Give Up." Two Postal Service songs, two covers -- a definite must-see for fans.
It starts off with the shimmery trip-hop "Such Great Heights" ("I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles/in our eyes are mirror images and when/we kiss they're perfectly aligned...") and slips into the lower-key, murmuring "There's Never Enough Time." Then we get a cover by the Shins, a catchy cover of "We Will Become Silhouettes," finishing up with Iron and Wine's slow, sleepy cover of the title song.
Both the song from "Give Up" and the new song are the sort of sweet indie pop that Postal Service is known for, with Jimmy Tamborello's (Dntel) sweet voice and Ben Gibbard's (Death Cab For Cutie) electronic shimmers and flourishes. The covers are also nice, especially since the Shins and Iron and Wine give individual touches to them: The Shins choose a sound heavy on acoustic guitar, while Iron and Wine have guitarwork so slow and soft that it seems like a totally different song from the upbeat first track.
Fans of the quirky indie-trip-hop album "Give Up" will want to check out not only the stuff by the Postal Service, but covers of their work too. A solid release.
