Oh wow. good catch. i remember having a conversation with the folks i mentioned, them saying, "this is jenny lewis singing, you'd like her" and listening to the whole postal service record. and i know i've watched her and ben gibbard do this one live before so i always assumed it was her singing on the record. thanks for clarifying this for me!
