Death Cab for Cutie announce limited edition vinyl box set, The Barsuk Years
Death Cab for Cutie have announced a limited edition vinyl box set called The Barsuk Years, due January by Artists in Residence. The set will include all of their earlier studio albums released by Barsuk, some of which have never been available before on vinyl. There will be only 1500 copies, with each set being personally signed by the band. This will be a great late holiday gift for your Gibbard and Co.-obsessed friends.
It sounds like Dntel has snuck into the Death Cab For Cutie studio to add some beats behind 'Home Is A Fire'. We can't actually verify that (and it certainly isn't the Postal Service) but it sort of works. The video is quite nice too and is directed by Shepard Fairey and Nicholas Harmer. It's taken from the album Codes And Keys, which is released on May 31st through Atlantic Records. [read more]
