The word on the street is that Death Cab is hard at work on their new studio album. The album will be in stores in May but you can take a sneak peak by clicking here to watch some video footage from the studio.
It's around this time of year that I'm actually excited for the holiday season. The stressful countdowns haven't started, the shopping arenas aren't packed with frenzied masses, and yet I can still pick up a soy eggnog latte at my favorite coffeeshop.
It's good to know that our dear friends Art Brut, Chris Walla, The Long Winters and Sufjian are in the holiday spirit with us!
Here's a chance to get some exclusive songs from some of your favorite bands and help a great cause, the crisis in Darfur. The proceeds of the album are going to support various organizations trying to aid the people of Darfur
So, obviously, I had to make an autumn mix. To me, autumn songs are a distinct class -- they aren't as low and pensive as a winter song, but they're still quiet, and maybe just a little more hopeful.
A surprise appearance from Mr. Benjamin Gibbard! (!!!!!!!!)
Great news about the forthcoming record... but yikes, this is scary stuff! Isn't there a petition somewhere we should all be signing?
Death Cab fans, alert! I just got this gem in my inbox...
As anyone who knows me can attest, I love Death Cab for Cutie. I think they're an amazing, wonderful band. And those same people will tell you I think the same of Nirvana, but for very different reasons. But Ben Gibbard covering Kurt Cobain was like listening to an utter castration of all that makes Nirvana great.
