Death Cab for Cutie’s Transatlanticism—which we are REALLY excited to hear played in full (tonight!)—will get a deluxe reissue on 10/19.
ONE MORE WEEK!
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, independent label Barsuk Records is hosting a multi-day celebration in its homebase of Seattle.
And one of those days happens to be Sunday, September 1 at Bumbershoot. Do not miss it.
Built To Spill member Brett Nelson has spent the past couple of years working on, among other things, electro-tinged takes on some of his friends’ songs. 2012’s The Electronic Anthology Project Of Dinosaur Jr. found him bleeping and blooping through J. Mascis riffs and was met with such enthusiasm that he’s made a follow-up. The Electronic Anthology Project of Death Cab For Cutie is out July 2 and features fuzzed out versions of two cuts—”Soul Meets Body” and “Champagne From A Paper Cup”—hand-picked by DCFC frontman Ben Gibbard, who also contributed new vocals. The A.V. Club has an exclusive listen to the latter.
The 7-inch is available for pre-order now both as a lovely colored piece of vinyl and as a two-song digital bundle.
#throwbackthursday to the recording of The Con in 2007 with our friend Chris Walla! @jumex
Here’s hoping these three get to hang together at Bumbershoot 2013.
Death Cab For Cutie are celebrating the tenth anniversary of their stunning fourth studio album, Transatlanticism, by performing it live in its entirety at the Bumbershoot music and arts festival in Seattle, September 1. Above is a live version of the title track which has become the quintessential closer at DCfC live shows.
The perfect way to cap off a day celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Barsuk Records.
