Death Cab For Cutie - The Barsuk Years Box Set

Today’s giveaway is The Barsuk Years, a vinyl box set of early Death Cab For Cutie releases, produced in a limited run of 1500. Each is individually numbered and signed by the band. Details:

This deluxe box set contains all of Death Cab for Cutie’s early albums and E.P.s, some never before available on vinyl. All the records from the original 1997 cassette-only “demo” You Can Play These Songs With Chords (originally released via the band’s first label, Bellingham, WA-based Elsinor) through 2001’s The Stability E.P. have been re-mastered by Roger Seibel at SAE, bringing the audio quality of those pressings up to that of the band’s ground-breaking classic 2003 opus (and final studio release via Barsuk) Transatlanticism. Three releases in the package (You Can Play These Songs With Chords, The Stability E.P., and The Death Cab for Cutie Forbidden Love E.P.) are available for the first time on vinyl, only as a part of this box – the entire set is pressed on hefty, beautiful 180-gram vinyl. Each release is packaged individually in its own jacket with the album’s original artwork, and then collected snugly in an individually-numbered cloth-bound box and signed by the band.

BOX SET INCLUDES:
- You Can Play These Songs With Cords (33 rpm; vinyl exclusive to this box set – jacket features original cassette artwork)
- Something About Airplanes (33 rpm; die-cut jacket and layered vellum insert)
- We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes (33 rpm; die-cut jacket)
- The Death Cab for Cutie Forbidden Love E.P. (45 rpm; vinyl exclusive to this box set)
- The Photo Album (33 rpm; includes original full-size photo inserts)
- The Stability E.P. (45 rpm; vinyl exclusive to this box set)
- Transatlanticism (45 rpm double-vinyl with full-size 12-page book insert)
- Numbered cloth-bound box, individually signed by the band

  28. TRANSATLANTICISM, by far. If I could only choose one album to take with me on an eternal journey, it would be Transatlanticism. There is, and never will be, a more beautiful record ever written.

  29. We Have The Facts And We’re Voting Yes!!

  30. Has to be Transatlanticism (nearly perfect from start to finish), but The Photo Album is a very close second for sentimental reasons.

  31. Love them all, but Plans is my all time fave.

  32. We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes

  36. I love them all but Transatlanticism is the one.
