Indie Man Of The Year

This week's mp3's celebrate the first annual "Largehearted Musician Of The Year," Ben Gibbard. Not only did he continue the string of great albums with his band (Death Cab For Cutie's Transatlanticism), but he also worked with Jimmy Tamborello and put out my favorite album of the year, The Postal Service's Give Up.

In his solo shows, Ben is known for his unique choice of covers. He adds a subtle poignancy to the Kirsty MacColl-penned, "They Don't Know," which was made a hit by none other than the comic Tracey Ullman.

The Postal Service toured this year with largehearted hearthrob Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley on backing vocals, and the second mp3 of the month is this band covering "Against All Odds," the Phil Collins classic from the movie of the same name.
