    You should check out Transatlantacism by Death Cab. I love that album.

    I think Tim Robbins' band is called Gob Roberts.

    I second Transatlanticism... tis a very good album, also pick up The Photo Album... it's a little slow, but it has some really awesome songs on there. And just to tell you, the name of their most recent CD is "Plans" not The Plan.
    If I could, think I would give in.

    I can't stand death cab. They couldn't sound more like over emotive indie emo wusses if they wanted. Yawn.

    Some of it sucks sure, but some of it is quite beautiful, relaxing music. don't listen to it if ya don't like it as far as im concerned. i wouldn't call it emo music either, because they don't sing about every 13 year olds problems and issues like much of the crap out there.

    if you like death cab - check out the postal service or dntel - postal service has some solid tunes that are very upbeat - the lead singer from death cab is also the lead for the postal service - i highly recommend it

    yeah i was at the toledo o4 vfc concert - with papa neil and death cab - was definitely the best concert ive been to in ten years - hands down

    im not sure if they played - i will follow you into the dark or not - they played most of the transaltanticism album (awesome album) - this song was a little bit later on

    Really digging the new song as well. Excited for the new album and to see them again in September.

    Good interview with Ben over at NPR talking about the inspiration behind Gold Rush.

    My wife and I have been listening every night. What a treat that he is doing this. He has been mixing in some nice covers with his extensive catalogue (Death Cab, Postal Service, All Time Quarterback, his work with Jay Farrar and his solo stuff). Also takes the time to answer some questions and he is asking for requests of cover songs. Tomorrow night's performance is going to be all covers. If he plays Footsteps or Hold On you can thank me.

    No Pearl Jam covers last night, but some others that were great to hear. The Elliott Smith, John Lennon and Phoebe Bridgers covers in particular stood out to me.
