Ben Gibbard joins the Electric Anthology Project
Making it seem like the return of The Postal Service might not just be a one-time thing, Ben Gibbard will be pairing up with the Electric Anthology Project to remake some of his material into synth-pop jams.
The project, headed by Built To Spill member Brett Nelson, previously enlisted the likes of J Mascis for the 7” series. With Gibbard, EAP will debut the digital single remakes of 'Soul Meets Body' and the 1998 song 'Champagne From a Paper Cup' July 2nd. Following the release, color-pressed 7” copies will also be released.
Stay with the EAP website for more details of the project.

Perhaps seeking to take the country air and avoid that totally obnoxious, city slicker of an ex-wife, Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab For Cutie fame) has today unleashed the country-tinged 'Something's Rattling (Cowpoke)'. Sounding a bit like a sedate version of Cash's 'Ring of Fire' with its "ooo-ing" female backing vocals and the punctuating brass stabs, Gibbard croons his way through what feels like a bit of an unexpected turn for one of Indie's most dependable elder statesmen.
