Death Cab: Soul Meets Body Revieiw


Let me say, my biggest problem with Death Cab has been that they let their guitarist produce their records. They are always kind of erratic and spotty soundwise. I often feel like he thinks "wow, that's a sweet sound I got for the Rhodes, lets make sure that sits in front of the mix." Well that holds true for the newest track from the newest LP offering from Washington's darlings. The song itself, is fine, sweet and strays not at all from their usual schtick. Sadly, it has zero guts, bores me out of my mind and gathers no excitement whatsoever for what is in store on the new record. Much like Weezer, Death Cab seems to be making music as crappy as the bands trying to rip them off on their prior albums. That is sad.

3:13 PM

The other day I saw Transatlanticism in the music section of Target. It was on the top row, under a sign that maybe said "HOTT TRAX!!11!!!11" It was also sandwiched between "Now That's What I Call Music 19" and "Rumors" by Lindsay Lohan.

I tried not to imagine the hordes of Hollister'd a-holes jumping into their Jeep Wranglers and heading up to the Les Schwab Ampitheatre for a weekend of fucking to the dulcid strains of post-Postal Service Death Cab. How many shy 19 year old girls will lose their virginity to requests to play The District Sleeps Alone Tonight? About as many as would think it perfectly natural for the Pixies to be the opening act.

I didn't try very hard.
