news: death cab for cutie announce new LP, kitsungi

this is it, folks. DCFC’s last outing with original member and backbone of the band’s sound, chris walla. kintsungi is the last album he’ll be a part of, so i’m expecting big things. strange to say about a band who hasn’t released an album i’ve liked the last three times around.

a symbolic name to say the least:

It’s a Japanese style of art where they take fractured, broken ceramics and put them back together with very obvious, real gold. It’s making the repair of an object a visual part of its history. That resonated with us as a philosophy, and it connected to a lot of what we were going through, both professionally and personally.

1. No Room in Frame
2. Black Sun

listen: death cab for cutie – transatlanticism [10-year reissue]

remember how much of an emo rite of passage this album was? well soak in the fact that it’s 10 years old and you’re far removed from those days. and if not, reevaluate some things and get happy. but in the meantime, head over to NPR and listen to the album’s 10-year anniversary reissue.

listen: death cab for cutie – soul meets body [the electronic anthology project version]

at the link below, hear the electronic anthology project’s take on death cab for cutie’s plans single, 2005’s “soul meets body.” created by built to spill’s brett nelson with a completely new vocal track by ben gibbard, the song sounds more like something from new order than it does the postal service. so fans of bleep blorp can take a backseat.

video: death cab for cutie – underneath the sycamore (2012)

[vodpod id=Video.15942314&w=425&h=350&fv=%26rel%3D0%26border%3D0%26]

death cab for cutie is a name synonymous with twee, instagram, and seth cohen. perhaps hoping to kill of that bit of misnomer, the band decided to fold a little hardboiled crime fiction into their new video for “underneath the sycamore” from last year’s codes and keys. the result is a gritty animated thriller with a twist ending. check it out above.

death cab stops by the kimmel studios to perform “you are a tourist” and “underneath the sycamore,” two of codes and keys finest. that being said, this recent zooey break up will hopefully have ben gibbard in prime form: will he finally release a SAD follow-up to plans? i mean, he already has the break up beard!

“sycamore” under the jump.
