I want purity, I must have it here right now
But don’t you get me started now

Everything sounds so fucking good, so crisp, but broken where it needs to be broken. Everything’s just right in your face. I don’t want to jinx it, but I think it’s the best record we’ve made in a while.
—Ben Gibbard, September 2014 on the new record (sounds like you are about to get some angsty serves Zooey)

It’s gotten late and now I want to be alone
All of our friends were here, they all have gone home
And here I sit on the front porch
Watching the drunks stumble forth into the night

You gave me a heart attack, I did not see you there
I thought you had disappeared so early away from here
And this is the chance I never got
To make a move, but we just talk about

The people we’ve met in the last five years
And will we remember them in ten more
I let you bum a smoke, you quit this winter past
I’ve tried twice before but like this, it just would not last

The first ever time i heard death cab for cutie was via the first song on this record ‘steadier footing’ being played on acoustic guitars to me by Ben and chris (and maybe Nick)  in 2003 in rocking horse records in July of that year to maybe just under 100 people, got talking to them and got put on the door for the over age show and bought the photo album  following pay day, and apresto favorite band on earth ever since and this is my favorite album ever basically, own it on cd, vinyl movie script ending single and barsuk pre release promo poster, you could say i like it, i like it a lot. Of course a month or two things would change forever in indie rock, Elliott Smith would die and then a year later a little thing called transatlanticism came out, note they previewed songs like the new year at this show, before the album… I’ve seen some good stuff man

Tiny vessels oozed into your neck
And formed the bruises
That you said you didn’t want to fade,
But they did and so did I that day…

theres a saltwater film
on the jar of your ashes
i threw them to sea
but a gust blew them backwards
and the sting in my eyes
which you then inflicted
was par for the course
just as when you were living

most people in America
  • i've spoken to have only seen death cab for cutie max 3-5 times, i'm from Australia and have seen them 15 times in ten years, aw yeaaaaah

We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
Fumbling to make contact
As the others slept inside
