I just fell in love with the Postal Service....
    #2288242 - 01/30/04 11:00 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I finally picked up 3 cds of theirs and OMG they are what Ive been looking for for a long time now.  I love just finding a new album that I can love so much like this. 

I had heard bits and pieces of theirs in the past but wow this is really great.  Its just like an upbeat sneeker pimps and massive attack.  Anyways,  these albums are going to be doing it for me for a long time. :grin:

the lead singer of t.p.s. is the singer of death cab for cute. theyre still together, but he was in that band before the postal service started. theyre more guitar based, and less electronic based, but i think youd really like them.

yeah Death Cab is really cool- their newest CD rocks: "Transatlanticism".
According to www.allmusic.com, the singer's yet another previous project was called All-Time Quarterback.

The funny thing is i was just thinking about how much I HATE the postal service (actual post service) when I saw the title to this thread.

I'll check out their music... maybe it can curb my hatred for an essential service :P

I'd like to add that there is some really great song writing going on in this album. (give up).

I heard from my buddy that they have a video on MTV and I hope they dont blow up into a teeny bopper thing. I really do...

I'll check out this " death cab" thing but I like how TPS has like an emo/techno thing going on. Its actually pretty cool.

wow i think it is interesting when people like the postal service without even knowing who death cab is. Ben Gibbard is the singer/songwriter/huge part of the band, for Death cab for cutie and that is the band. a few years back ben becuse of his prolific creative engine started a mail correspondence with a band from sacramento? anywhere some band that was far away from him, and they would send demos back and fourth melting their music into songs. (i:e, he would write the lyrics and record it with him and an acustic guitar and then send it and they would add a keybord and send it back and so on and so forth) long story short they ended up with enough songs for a full length and they produced it. this is how they got the name the postal service as they were sending this stuff throught the postal service (clever no?) so in acuality the postal service isn't really a band so no they dont tour and stuff. death cab for cutie on the other hand is a great band and i have seen them in concert many times and they are amazing. well as for you hopes for them not being a "teenybobber" thing, i would say they definitly are and have been for a while. sorry. technically they haven't lost their indie status, but i dont really consider all indie bands part of the underground.

Give Up is magnificent. Last time I looked, that was all I could find. Time to look again.

Now get Neon Golden by The Notwist. Totally beats the Postal Service at their own game, they are alright though.

Death Cab is great, too. I like Transatlanticism, Something About Airplanes, and We Have The Facts. Photo Album kinds blows.

death cab + TPS both very good. I first listened to TPS, i think their stuff gets old after a while, but Im digging tranalanticism.
