Pavement "Starlings of the Slipstream" Brighten the Corners: Nicene Creeders Edition

Sorry, but a limited palette this week, just the songs on the iPhone. Still, I'm not sure you can do a bad cover of "Helpless." And I owe an apology to Jim James, but maybe I'll get to that if I ever wind up writing a review of the great Monster of Folk show last night. Plus a funny toss off from WE & AR, wonderful Inara George, and then still one of my fave Pavements.
