The Postal Service.

I can't tell you how much I love them. I really think that the electronic aspect of the band gives you a glimpse into the future of music. And Ben Gibbard, of course, is a very articulate and very talented songwriter. I like his work in PS moreso than Death Cab.

Anyway, what are your opinions?

Oh no wonder... I never realized that Deathcab and Postal Service shared some members.
Just waking up right now to Sleeping In... haha. Great band.

haha this is kinda funny:

Wikipedia.org
Quote:
The name "Postal Service" was chosen due to the way in which the band produced their songs. Jimmy would write the music then send DAT tapes to Ben, who would edit the song as he saw fit, adding his vocals along the way, and send them back to Jimmy via "Postal Service". In 2004, however, the United States Postal Service sent the band a cease and desist letter citing their trademark on the phrase "postal service." After negotiations, the USPS relented, allowing the band use of the trademark in exchange for promotional efforts on behalf of the USPS and a performance at their annual National Executive Conference. Additionally, the USPS website sells the band's CDs.

that album has really cool memories attached to it for me, mostly really nice views of the ocean and mountains and such. it was the only CD i had after my mp3 player broke on a trip to california, and i listened to it non-stop. the district sleeps alone tonight is a great, great song.

Uhhh what?
Ben Gibbard is really unbeatable... In my opinion of course.
I never found him annoying or anything like that...

I've just heard DCFC, and they're amazing. I'd love to check out some Postal Service.

He's too indie for him, obviously.

Seriously, though, I can see how people would find Gibbard annoying. I supposse to some people he'd seem like the really pretentious kinda bloke. Not in his interviews, but his music is pretty serious, if you know what I mean. His lyrics are very literate and he seems like a pretty smart guy. Snobbish, to some.

^ After you check out the Postal Service, check out Dntel. It's basically Jimmy Tamborello from the PS. I'm not really a Postal Service fan, but I love Dntel. In particular the Life Is Full of Possibilities album.
