The debut EP from The Postal Service, SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS, shows little correlation with Tamborello's glitchy main project, Dntel. Instead, it goes for poppy electronica, and with that, it's eminently successful. The title song is gloriously catchy; it's not surprising that it was a moderate crossover hit. "There's Never Enough Time" is more mellow and introspective, but still has an irrepressible catchiness that's hinted at by quiet woodwinds in the background. And it's a strange day when rock musicians cover electronic musicians, but that's what we have here. The folksy, acoustic Iron and Wine version of "Such Great Heights" is the more successful of the two, but that might be a matter of source material.

Odd that the first release of The Postal Service featured covers from a not-yet-out album, but that's what they did. <b>Such Great Heights</b> is from their debut album . <b>There's Never Enough Time</b> is a nice quiet song, very much in the vein of Dntel, plus guitar work from Ben.

<i>The Shins</i> provide a nice indie-rock cover, complete with harmonzing vocals. <i>Iron And Wine</i> make the song a bit more mournful, slowing it down and singing in a creepy crooner voice.

Keen concept from a band which is a joining of indie + electronic, providing quite a bit of variety in just over 15 minutes of music.
