Postal Service

Give Up (Double Vinyl)

(Ben From Death Cab For Cutie, Jimmy from DNTEL, Figurine)

Sub Pop 595

Released on February 18, 2003

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

That dueling duo-- indie heartthrob Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie and Dntel's Jimmy Tamborello-- have completed work on the debut full-length release from their side project The Postal Service. Much like the songwriting process for Tamborello's other non-Dntel pop project, Figurine, Give Up was created via tape exchanges through this fine nation's potassium iodide-popping U.S. Postal Service. (Hence the name, smart guy.) Jimmy sent rough music tracks to Ben; Ben bounced them right back with raw vocal takes; Jimmy then cleaned any dirty spots and polished as he deemed necessary. In fact, the only time the duo hooked up in person was during the final vocal recordings and mixing phase. The album, titled Give Up, is packed with ten beautifically glitched-out pop dramas.

awesome album and great to have on vinyl. Nearly solid all the way through. Double vinyl comes with bonus tracks "There's Never Enough Time" and "Suddenly Everything Has Changed" along with covers and remixes by Iron&Wine/the Shins. Only PS song absent is "Be Still My Heart" if you haven't got it, get it.
