CD Review: Death Cab For Cutie Performs In The Perfect "Key"
The band reinvented themselves on this new release, relying on their vocals and harmonies as the centerpiece of the songs "Home Is A Fire" and "St. Peter's Cathedral." The boys still show they can rock on the bass driven "Doors Unlocked And Open" and on one of the few guitar tracks "You Are A Tourist." Their new love of the piano is displayed nicely on the ballad "Unobstructed Views." Lead singer/songwriter Ben Gibbard seems to throughly enjoy singing the lyrics to "Portable Television," while their message of unity is clearly presented on "Underneath the Sycamore." The album closes with the band having fun performing the gentle, acoustic "Stay Young, Go Dancing."
Death Cab For Cutie set out on their US tour last month and will be continuing through the month of August. For a complete list of tour dates, twitter information, facebook updates and more, please visit the band's website deathcabforcutie.com.
