Ben Gibbard's new band has a MySpace page with only one song. So far it's only had 129 listens and three friends. It's unsigned and sparse and the page is, frankly, hilarious.
The project is called Just Jazzin' and, well, that's about what the tune sounds like. Think Marimba. Just Marimba.
Here's the official word from the press release:
Benjamin Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) is proud to announce a new musical project called Just Jazzin'. Born out of an interest in exploring music free from rules and convention, Just Jazzin' offers the world a chance to see another side of Ben.
"….There's this side of me and my music that desires a lack of structure and Just Jazzin' does that for me because I am allowed to just play whatever note comes into my head.", says Ben.
