The Postal Service

maybe i should have posted this in Zoo Confessionals . . . i LOVE the Postal Service! their music is so damn tight, even though the lyrics are pretty lame. the guy's voice is great, and i love all the electronic stuff going on. it's pretty cool.

Postal Service is like a super band which is when the best of three awesome bands make one really awesome band

Death Cab + Rilo Kiley + DNTL = Postal Service

the lyrics aren't lame their just really cheery and light-hearted, they fit the music

example -
And then last night i had that strange dream
Where everything was exactly how it seemed
Where concerns about the world getting warmer
The people thought they were just being rewarded
For treating others as they like to be treated
For obeying stop signs and curing diseases
For mailing letters with the address of the sender
Now we can swim any day in november

Give Up is one of my favorite start-to-finish records. The Postal Service is absolutely fantastic.

I like the album. Gets a bit meandering at points, but it gets some leeway for being a side project.

I love The Postal Service too. My favourite song by them is "Such Great Heights," it's incredible.

it's hardly a guilty pleasure for me, I think they are quite spiffy

Such Great Heights, for me, is terrible...plus, listen to code4 by 'Polysics' and it sounds like TPS have ripped them off...!

i think that "the district sleeps alone tonight" may be one of the best songs i've ever heard. other than that, i've never heard anything of theirs, i hate them just on the basis of what i've read. that's me being close-minded. thanks to pax and her ICDE cd, though, i'll probably end up going and buying whatever album it is i need to own as soon as i've got the spare cash.

Sure it sounds a little similar.. but in the end they are quite different songs and good in their own right on their own merits.

At least SGH doesn't have those annoying processed vocals

Give Up is a solid record.
