Death Cab For Cutie - Codes and Keys - May 31st

Death Cab for Cutie

New album.

Quote:
The BBC radio host Zane Lowe recently interviewed guitarist Chris Walla and learned that the first single will probably be called "You Are a Tourist". Walla told Lowe that legendary My Bloody Valentine producer Alan Moulder is mixing the record and that the band is experimenting with synths and reverb rather than relying as heavily on their usual strummy guitars. Check out the video of the interview below.

In a Spin interview last year, frontman Ben Gibbard claimed that the new album wouldn't be "guitar-based" and that the band had been picking up inspiration from Brian Eno's art-rock masterpiece Another Green World. But in a Stereogum interview from December, bassist Nick Harmer claims that the album will still sound more or less like a Death Cab for Cutie album, just one with less guitar: "There are definitely guitars on this record. There are just less of them than before, and we're using them in different ways this time. Ben was really inspired by writing on acoustic guitar and on a piano, so often those parts become voices or keyboard lines, rather than guitar parts. We really experimented with piecing the songs together in different ways and using the studio differently, so this a much less guitar-centric album than we've ever made before."

Neat, hopefully.

And possibly the most insane week for alternative music ever continues! At this rate, this week is going to have to result in the announcement of the second Avalanches album to top itself.

This is like a silent fart in the wake if the Radiohead album news. What a lament-timed announcement.

Nobody cares, Señor Deschanel.

Doesn't help that the last album had such a limited impact. I loved it, personally. Thought it was refreshingly engaging and not at all mopey, but OC viewers don't care for that.

Hope this new one has some creativity to it.

Seriously, though, I'm quite excited for this one...not as much as I am for, say, Angles or The King Of Limbs, but it's definitely on my radar.

I'm excited as well. All Death Cab did was post a title and date on their website. It's still over 3 months away, it's not as if any of their fans remotely cares whether or not another band announced an album release this week.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-

I was going to the second day of Sasquatch where DCFC is headlining, but the tickets are already sold out. That they'd have a new album being released days later would have been awesome.

Yeah, this is good news, too.

Codes and Keys sounds very familiar. Like it's been a recent album title, for someone else, somewhere. I don't know, it just kind of sounds like a typical album title. That probably doesn't make any sense. I guess it's just not a very original or attention-grabbing album title.

That doesn't matter, though. It could be called Elfa Sings The Jonas Brothers' Catalogue, in Canadian and it wouldn't matter, as long as the tunes are good.

I think You Are A Tourist is a pretty good song. I love the guitar work for sure. But I'm not exactly thrilled by the song either though. It sounds sort of... oh I don't know, generic? I'm still excited for this release.
