I noticed Amanda Palmer (of The Dresden Dolls) just put up an excellent cover of Death Cab For Cutie's "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" on her solo's well, well worth checking out/downloading. I've always loved that song, and really liked what she did with it...check it out HERE...

(By the way, not sure how many of you are familiar with Amanda or The Dolls, but they're absolutely amazing -- one of my favorite bands, even...if you dig the DCFC cover, they've also been covering "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service live for a few years -- there's a download of that available HERE on The Brigade -- their live/rarities MP3 archive)

What Death Cab song is the closest to your heart?

Mine's "Styrfoam Plates." I didn't have much of a father either. Even though I want to see if we can keep in touch and patch things up, it's still cathartic to sing along to "You're a disgrace to the concept of family!"

On youtube, natch.

The sound quality's pretty terrible, but it sounds like he's talking about getting an island (though, I think it was all in jest).

(I really hope this is allowed, I couldn't see anywhere that it wasn't, though. Please feel free to delete it if it's against the rules.)

I've searched and searched for another community like the one I just created, but couldn't find any. If there is one, I apologise. Profusely.

Anyway, enough blather. Here I present:

A community solely for icons and other graphics of Death Cab For Cutie (and The Postal Service).

So, if you like icons and graphics, or make icons and graphics of Death Cab/PS, then please JOIN.

Thanks everyone =)

Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone had mp3s, or any type of audio file of....

1). Ben Gibbard w/ Elvis Costello- I Will follow You into the Dark (at VH1 Decades Rock Live)
2). Death Cab covering Elvis Costello's "Accidents Will Happen" (also from VH1 Decades rock live)

Also, I saw Death Cab this summer and they covered REM's "Cuyahoga" and I was wondering if there was a bootleg of this floating around. 
I would really appreciate it, thanks :)

I went to the last show of the tour last night in Seattle. Of course, it was amazing. I went their show last year at the paramount, too. Last year, I was fortunate enough to acctually meet Ben Gibbard and Chris Walla because my step-sister knows John Roderick (of The Long Winters) who is quite good friends with them. Although that was amazingly exciting and beyond cool, I'd have to say that this show was much better. Their light system was extremely better than last year, and they acctually got to play some old songs too! And not to mention, the amazing Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins! I was also really excited that Ben did his drum solo this year. That was pretty fucking cool.

So, to sum it all up, that was about the best concert I've ever been to even though my seats weren't the greatest.

Hey guys!

I am a student teacher, teaching a unit on poetry to some high school students, and I want to use a Death Cab for Cutie song to get the whole poetry thing rolling.

Problem is, I have to know the names of the authors of Crooked Teeth, so that I can credit them for it. I'd rather use their individual names than the name of the band, especially since I don't know if one of the members does most of the writing, or if they all collaborate. Even if they all have a hand in writing, I'll need their names.

Anyway, long story short, I can't find liner notes online anywhere. Can someone give me the name(s) of the author(s) of Crooked Teeth?

Thanks a lot!

Does anyone have a copy of "The Sound of Settling" acoustic version from the DVD? I'm having a really difficult time tracking it down and I'm begining to suspect I'm not going to find it.

Any help? Please and thank you.

Hey everyone. I was just wondering, do any of you guys have screen caps of the bunnies from the I Will Follow You Into the Dark video? Or large pictures of the bunnies? I'm planning to get a tattoo of them sometime and I'm going to need a clear picture. Thanks :)

A while back, I think it was at the end of last year, someone posted a whole bunch over covers that the boys have done. My computer has been wiped since I downloaded them, so I've lost them :(. I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to reupload them for me? Please? I'll give you coookies and SFs.

Not my video, found it on youtube.
He says a lot of things I'd never expected him to say. You've changed, Ben Gibbard. You've changed!

And, yes, I'm aware of what's going on in this video.
