Ok so, we haven’t got a new Postal Service album since Give Up, or any Postal Service material for that matter. But 2008 did bring us new Dntel and new Death Cab for Cutie. We’ll just have to take that.
The new DCFC album Narrow Stairs has one of my favourite album covers this year, and the music itself isn’t too bad either. ‘Cath’ and ‘Long Division’ are among the band’s finest songs. Nothing for me will touch The Photo Album though, not even Transatlanticism.
Death Cab bring their OC-endorsed rock to Dublin’s Ambassador Theatre on November 13th. No info on ticket prices yet. But I’ll let you know.
EDIT: Tickets on sale Friday Week, August 22nd.
