Death Cab For Cutie, Transatlanticism
2013 | Label: Barsuk Records

Transatlanticism is more or less about a long distance relationship, but it’s also about a band letting go of its humble beginnings, its humble attitudes and opening up its sound to a wider world.

Released in 2003, Transatlanticism was the right album from the right band at the right time. Gibbard might declare that he doesn’t feel any different, as he does on the album’s lead track, “The New Year,” but things sound different, more open,… read more »

Ben Gibbard’s 5 Favorite Solo Albums

By Annie Zaleski, Contributor

Since Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard is finally releasing his first proper solo album, Former Lives, it seemed appropriate to ask about the most meaningful solo albums in his record collection. As eMusic's Annie Zaleski spoke with Gibbard, however, it became clear that these cherished albums influenced Former Lives – whether intentionally or otherwise. Below, you'll find Gibbard's assessment of his favorite solo records – and eMusic's armchair analysis of those inspirations. Emitt Rhodes,… more »

Icon: Death Cab for Cutie

By Chris Ryan, Contributor

You can imagine Ben Gibbard's late-'90s Bellingham, Washington, bedroom; a copy of Tape Op magazine, well thumbed-through, lying on the floor; a Low album on the record player; a Tascam 4-track recorder sitting on a nightstand, with an acoustic guitar leaning against it. Death Cab for Cutie, the solo project Gibbard would have been working on at the time, taking a break from his band All-Time Quarterback, sprung from these somewhat modest beginnings. And the rise… more »

Death Cab’s Chris Walla On UGGs, Nine Inch Nails, and Bacon as the New Vegan

By Marc Hogan, Lead News Writer

Chris Walla is best known as the guitarist for Death Cab for Cutie, but the Pacific Northwest musician is also a solo artist and veteran producer in his own right. But while Walla produced Codes & Keys, Death Cab's first album since 2009's chart-topping Narrow Stairs, he delegated the mixing duties to someone else: Alan Moulder, whose name has appeared in the liner notes to many of the greatest alternative-rock albums from the past 25… more »

From a Whisper to a Scream

By Douglas Wolk, Contributor

Börk's got a lot going for her: eccentric songwriting, visual presence, a smartly chosen bunch of collaborators, high-flying conceptual grandeur. More than anything, though, she's got a voice like nothing else on the planet. It's bizarre and lovely, a sound that seems at home both on radio hits and in avant-garde art spaces. It communicates at least as much as her songs themselves, and in fact presenting lyrics is pretty far from the point: unless… more »
