The Broken Earth is a song incorrectly attributed to Nick Drake or The Soft Machine. But who actually wrote/performed it?

From my googlefu I have seen speculation that it is Kevin Ayers, Red House Painters and a half dozen others, but the music and voice never quite fit.

Sounds kind of like someone imitating Nick Cave a little bit.

That sounds a hell of a lot like Oren Lavie. Can't find the particular song, though. It almost seems like it's a demo or something.

Stylistically it is a bit different than Oren Lavie but that is very close. One of the nice things about searching for this song is that I have come across so many great artists I would have never heard. So, thanks Lovermont! (thanks too, thefool, but Nick Cave and I are old friends).
