Death Cab For Cutie

When I saw Death Cab for Cutie play a surprise show at Music Hall of Williamsburg in January, they played a few new cuts off their soon to be released album Kintsugi (March 31 via Atlantic Records). One of them was a song by the name of “The Ghosts of Beverly Drive.”

It stood out to be because of the amount of sharp bite that it had live, while interestingly also finding ways to trickle in a more airy atmosphere with the help of some electronic influences. I was excited to see how the recorded version turned out, and I’m happy to say that they were able to capture that same live energy on the recording.

Stream “The Ghosts of Beverly Drive” below, along with “No Room In Frame,” the previously released album track. You can hear first single “Black Sun” here.

Death Cab’s video for “Stay Young, Go Dancin” is sure to hit home for all you lovebirds out there. It’s what you could expect from the album closer, it’s meant to make you feel all warm and cuddly inside.

If you’re having a bad day, watch this video. Well, maybe don’t if you’re romantically frustrated (seriously).

[new] Death Cab For Cutie – Underneath The Sycamore

By Will Oliver, May 10th 2011 — with 1 comment

Death Cab For Cutie drop their new LP Codes And Keys, at the end of this month. We’ve been getting treated to bits and pieces, but I’m sure I’m not alone with my eagerness to hear the entire piece.

We’re one step closer with yet another track to listen to from the album. The band is streaming “Underneath The Sycamore” right now. It’s a warm familiar territory for Death Cab for the most part, it just seems like their playing has become somewhat tighter. A nice listen to get your morning started.

[new] Death Cab For Cutie – Some Boys

By Will Oliver, April 20th 2011

Death Cab For Cutie have given us an early look at new album Codes And Keys via “You Are A Tourist” & “Home Is A Fire”. Yesterday they unveiled, “Some Boys”, another new song.

“Some Boys” blow me away at first, but I was very intrigued. Something about it connected with me, but just not fully. Then, I hit repeat a few times. Now after nearly half a dozen listens, I’m starting to appreciate it a lot more.

The band is playing with a new sound, leaving the familiar territory that they’ve made a healthy career out of. A dark cloud of moody ambiance surrounds the music, welcoming the listener to fully breath in the tensity that Ben Gibbard and co. are trying to initiate.

I believe the songs we’ve heard off Codes And Keys will benefit a great deal among each others company. Doesn’t seem like the band are trying to make stand out singles. Rather, it seems like all the songs are pieces of a final puzzle that will be, Codes And Keys.

Death Cab For Cutie have made another track from Codes And Keys available to stream. It’s the album opener, “Home Is A Fire”. It’s a slow grinding song that uses electronic sounds to open the door towards a dark atmosphere. Sounds like a good way to start an album, to me

Stream it below.

Here’s the music video for “You Are A Tourist” which was made/live streamed last night:

[new] Death Cab for Cutie – You Are A Tourist

Today 107.7 The End posted Death Cab For Cutie’s new single “You Are A Tourist”. I’m pleased to hear how well the single turned out to be. It’s a joyful display of indie guitar rock with a sharp riff that proves that Death Cab has plenty left in their tank. I expected something more electronic after reading album previews, so it’s direction was quite a pleasant surprise. It has traces of electronic lingering in the horizon, but guitars and shiny production stand tall in the forefront.

Death Cab fans are some of the hardest to please, but I personally think they’ve done right here. Stream it below:

Last night Ben Gibbard, Death Cab For Cutie’s frontman/lead singer played an acoustic solo benefit show in Seattle. He played a new song that should see a spot on Death Cab For Cutie’s new album. He also covered Radiohead’s “All I Need” and The Seekers “I’ll Never Find Another You” along with his wife, Zooey Deschanel. The new song is sounding good.

All three videos are posted below:

If you didn’t know it already, I am a huge baseball fan. I used to play myself as a pitcher/first basemen/center fielder, but arm injuries from pitching killed the dream. I am an avid Yankee fan, and am really happy right now because baseball has returned.

I am posting about this because Death Cab for Cutie played some baseball classics at The Seattle Mariners opening day at Safeco Field. They played the classic baseball songs “Centerfield” (John Fogerty) and “Take Me Out to the Ball Game“.

A Mariners fan recorded both songs which you can watch below:
