Just in time for gratuitous repeat playback in a tryptophan haze, the lovelies over at Barsuk have decided to grace us with this:
Barsuk is pleased to announce the upcoming reissue of Death Cab for Cutie's classic 1998 debut album, something about airplanes, on November 25th. This limited 10-year anniversary deluxe CD edition will include a bonus disc featuring a recently-unearthed recording of the band’s first-ever Seattle show, a February 1998 set at the legendary venue The Crocodile Cafe. The reissue will also feature beautifully redesigned artwork, including extensive liner notes by noted musician and writer Sean Nelson (whose band Harvey Danger was the headliner of the bonus disc show, and who sings lead vocals on the DCfC set’s never-before-heard cover of The Smiths’ "Sweet and Tender Hooligan").
It's worth noting here that the ordering page refers to this as the deluxe edition.
And, as if that's not enough:
Also on November 25th, DCfC's most recent Atlantic Records release, narrow stairs, will finally become available on deluxe 180-gram vinyl via Barsuk. The first pressing of the long-awaited vinyl LP will include a 7" single with demo versions of two album tracks.
Listening party, anyone?
