Electric Anthology Project Of Death Cab For Cutie – “Soul Meets Body”

By Miles Bowe / July 2, 2013 - 11:28 am

You may have heard of The Electronic Anthology Project last year when Brett Nelson (of Built To Spill) used his electronic side-project to reimagine Dinosaur Jr. as gorgeous synth pop. Now he’s done the same to Death Cab For Cutie. This might seem like a less strange pairing considering Gibbard is one half of the recently reunited The Postal Service, and Gibbard’s newly recorded vocals sound right at home with Nelson’s smeared synths. The single featuring “Champagne From A Paper Cup” from Something About Airplanes and “Soul Meets Body,” from Plans is out today digitally and as a 7-inch vinyl in August. You can listen to the “Champagne” here, and “Soul” here, and finally, you can preorder the vinyl over at See Of Sound. So give them a listen, check out our Countdown of DCFC albums from worst to best, and let us know in the comments what you’re hoping Nelson tackles next – I feel like the National could get this treatment with some fantastic results.
