The first single from the new Death Cab for Cutie record just dropped, you can hear it through the link below. Seems a bit more polished than their older stuff, a little slicker maybe; but at least this first track seems a little less cheesetastic than the bad parts of ‘Narrow Stairs’ were*. I’m reserving judgement till I hear the rest of the record but I’m a little more optimistic than I have been
* That would be every track other than the first two. And maybe ‘Cath’. It really wasn’t a particularly good album.
