New Death Cab For Cutie – “Cath” (Live On BBC6)

You’ve argued about the four-minute instrumental intro and weighed in on the rectangularly collagist cover, but here’s something that should bring Death Cab fans together: a new tune, about a girl, performed solo acoustic by Ben Gibbard. It may waft by without much impact at first, but give “Cath” a second and third glance and it will possess your heart. If it feels too slight for you, though, remember it’s just a live session for BBC 6; the studio version may feature rampant jams and bass vamps yet.
