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.
Built to Spill are one of the few American indie rock bands from the '90s that have managed to last without going through a break-up, drama, a reunion followed by another break-up, or a total style change mainly due to either loss of creativity or unexpected stadium-like commercial success. Something even more admirable considering the fifteen-year plus deal they've had with a major label. [read more]
