New Death Cab for Cutie: Someday You Will Be Loved
mp3:Death Cab for Cutie - Someday You Will Be Loved (link removed)
I quite like it, and at first listen, liked the new album... I want to listen to it more than once before dissing any of the songs, but a few do seem a bit "dissable." Mostly good stuff, though... Standouts for me include "Marching Bands of Manhattan" and "I Will Follow You Into the Dark." "Soul Meets Body" reminds me of New Order, and I don't think that's a bad thing at all. I like some parts of "Summer Skin" and not others... the drum reminds me of a marching band, and at least on first listen, I do think it's a bad thing. It distracted me. But I will give it another chance...
And this track is not from Death Cab or about music (!), but it still seems appropriate, given our rush to hear new albums before their release date.
