She may be young but she only likes old things.
I don’t think it’s a secret that I adore Death Cab for Cutie and in particular Ben Gibbard’s voice. It therefore follows that I adore The Postal Service.
And I also adore the Shins doing covers of The Postal Service.
Here’s the spotify link.
And here’s the best fan made video I could find. (trust me when I say even though this is very literal, it’s not the most literal one out there).
And the original radio edit
I seem to be gushing a lot lately, but Death Cab on Saturday night were amazing. Festival Gardens is an awesome venue and I sincerely wish that it becomes a permanent venue, not just for 3 weeks during festival.
Couches should be mandatory at gigs. It felt like we were watching a band whilst relaxing at home.
It also helps when the band you’re watching is polished and professional.
DCFC are playing Perth Festival. That’s pretty awesome.
This video clip is pretty awesome too.
Its like death cab gave their album to a whole heap of artist friends and said make us some videos. They released a whole album of video clips which I accidentally bought instead of their album, but this was on it so all is well.
When an album has 5 songs with stars on it’s first listen through that’s generally a good sign.
It’s an album that screams Saturday morning.
It’s almost perfection.
There’s no nauseatingly poppy songs, but it treads that line between strange and weird and delightful.
Ben Gibbard’s voice conveys emotion. It makes you feel things. I listen to this album and I can feel sunshine and ran. The smell of freshly cut grass.
Pretty pastel colours and ice creams on the lawn.
Codes and Keys takes me away to all sorts of different places. It’s transporting, ethereal, magical.
It’s on high rotation.
