The Postal Service
    #4560217 - 08/20/05 08:24 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Does anyone else like them? I've recently developed a hardon for their album, "Give Up." Which is funny, because I've hated indie staunchly for sometime. Can anyone suggest me any similiar bands?

I like them alot. Thats a tough one.
The Shins and Iron and Wine are on the same label as them but their music is quite a bit different. Very good though, IMO.

Death Cab for Cutie has the same singer as The Postal Service. You should really try some more indie rock though. There's lots of really great stuff. Check out Pinback

Pinback live is soo soo soo good.

Always seemed like a flavor of the week band to me, Death Cab even more so...

"Such Great Heights" was okay the first 5 times I heard it.  The next 995 times were kinda tedious.  :undecided:

Les Savy Fav -Adopduction
Les Savy Fav - The Sweat Descends

Cherry Peel is also great by Of Montreal, I don't know how similar it is to this Postal Service, but it's certainly one of their best. "Fun Loving Nun" too.

I find Telefon TelAviv to be similar. Check it out great band.

Log in to view attachment

postal service has a pretty unique sound
theres not much out there that sounds like them
probably the closest thing i have is
her space holiday - young machines
glitchy pastoral loop pop with overly earnest vocals and lyrics
i mean that in a good way
but its still not as good as postal service

my favorite of the members orginal projects is rilo kiley
check out more adventurous or the execution of all things

the attachment is postal services cover of the flaming lips suddenly everything has changed
enjoy

Her Space Holiday is indeed awesome, when indie rock meets electro :smile: A very spot on comparison I must say. Her Space Holiday is marc bianchi, who is from Indian Summer. Another Killaaah band.

the singer sucks. They need to cut his voice out and add in some synth to replace his melodies. It wouldnt be so pussy indie if he wasnt in there. Other than that, the background tracks are pretty cool.

of course you have to be aware that the band is of two people, the crappy singer that comes from some shitty emo band, and the person who actually makes the music, who is from the gorrillaz.

Maybe you should fall in love or learn to accept others way of creativity without being so judgemental.
And that shitty emo band is Death Cab For Cutie...

I'd like to hear Death Cab's new album, I bet it's good if it's anything like Transatlanticism.

Postal Service = good.

check out dntel

the guy who makes the beats, Jimmy Tamborello, used to do this, and it's great stuff.

He has never worked with gorillaz. At least never been credited as doing so.

he's also done figurine, I've never heard that, but it's more electro indie-pop.



I wait patiently for a new postal service album.

I really hope they do another one.
