I cannot imagine what this means for Death Cab for Cutie. Chris Walla has been integral in shaping and defining the band’s sound for many years and his presence will definitely be missed, though there’s no doubt that Death Cab hasn’t been themselves for a little while now. This is rough news for sure, but I am hopeful for the future.

Shit, after Daft Punk, Justin Vernon’s name is like the second most common. Good for him, seriously.

that’s what i thought as well. less vocal effect, and more of a “Bon Iver” vocal range.

Without a doubt, The National.

I’m pretty sure Plans needs to be a lot higher. Maybe it’s my nostalgia talking, but that record is lyrically so great and so fucking sad. Ben knocked it out of the park on that record. “What Sarah Said” and “Brothers on a Hotel Bed” make it a fantastic record.

I think they’re totally new, because the reverb on Ben Gibbard’s voice is totally unlike the reverb on Give Up. There’s too much here, whereas there it was very little.

great bass line, so simple but so effective.
