The Postal Service

It seems that my excitement for starting the week with ‘Such Great Heights’ got the better of me yesterday. The premature post was this track from The Postal Service, an indie-alt-electronica supergroup. Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard had teamed up with electronica producer Jimmy Tamborello (aka Dntel) and Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis for the release of a single long player Give Up. For the band, the sum of the whole was certainly greater than the parts. The album is not like anything the main protagonists had produced with their own bands, and what’s more, this new wave of sound achieved much greater commercial success. The critics liked it too. Have a great week.
