MP3: Friday Five 03.05.10

After I don’t know how long, the sun is finally out. Here’s some tunes to celebrate. And a couple Elliott Smith tracks for when the clouds inevitably return. On 04.06.10 Kill Rock Stars will release remastered versions of Roman Candle and From A Basement On A Hill . (Not sure why … their raw ‘n rough quality is part of their charm, especially Candle.) Enjoy.
