Jay Farrar of Son Volt and Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie seem like an unlikely pairing, but their shared appreciation for Beat writer Jack Keroauc lead them to write songs with lyrics taken from the 1962 novel, Big Sur. The collaboration provides the soundtrack to the forthcoming documentary One Fast Move or I'm Gone: Kerouac's Big Sur. Today's Top Tune is "Breath Our Iodine."
