As Seen on TV: State Radio

I watched a repeat of the last season finale of "Weeds" this morning, and noticed something I didn't notice the first time I saw it: How unbelievably brilliant the song that played while Nancy burned her house down was. I'm actually a little outraged that the band that made it isn't more famous. That band is State Radio and the song is "Keepsake", the most heartbreaking yet strangely sweet song that you've never heard before. It's good enough to earn three versions embedded in this post: the original album version from "Peace Between Nations", a live version with nice audience claps, and a quieter, more acoustic performance.
