party like it’s 1998

TGIF, yo.

I was so stoked to hear about this collab, but not so impressed by the sound on the first few listens; it resembles too much something I’ve already heard from both Chet and Banks.  It’s since grown on me and now have my sights set on a 1998 tour…

road trippin’

When I road tripped from NJ to Manchester, TN for Bonnaroo many moons ago, my best friend’s boyfriend made an epic playlist.  The playlist was long–long enough to get us happily through 15 hours in the car together.  The playlist had rules.  The instant we crossed a state line we had to begin the respective state’s playlist.  Tracks included song titles with the state name, mentions of the state in the song, bands who hailed from the state, etc.  I can’t reveal what we listened to (maybe because I slept through quite a few states and maybe because you already know that we blew the speakers when John Denver came on in WV), but I am confident that our playlist knocks this one below out of the water.

This one is pretty spot on, though, if you’re into the Indie scene.

PS 2013


Hey, guess what?  It’s been 10 years since The Postal Service’s only album, “Give Up.”  TEN YEARS!

To celebrate, Benjamin Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, TPS’s duo, are reuniting!  The men plan to release a delux edition on the album in addition to a few tour dates (some of which include Coachella).

Benjamin Gibbard released is solo album, “Former Lives,” in late 2012, so it doesn’t look like Zoey Deschanel’s ex and Tamborello will be hitting the studio anytime soon.  Nothing has been confirmed, however.

Although Death Cab, The Postal Service, and Ben’s new stuff all sound incredibly similar, “Give Up” is still an album you can listen to in its entirety…ten years later.
