sfs: two for lauren

Lauren makes me do work, man.

A Real Hero (Feat. Electric Youth) - College

This is off the much-loved Drive soundtrack.

The End's Not Near - Band of Horses

This is off the less-loved The O.C. Mix 6: Covering our Tracks disc. BoH usually just make me want to listen to Carissa's Weird, but I like this version and the original pales.

...

I listened to some Elliott Smith the other day for the first time in a few years and then spent the rest of the day letting Smart DJ take me through people cribbing his style.

Did Elliott Smith invent coffeeshops? My mind springs to Tracy Chapman's mythology, but in the Northwest, Smith is definitely the patron saint of strumming on an uncomfortable stool.
