#PostalService6Music - help pick the Ultimate Postal Service Playlist
Thursday 24 January 2013, 10:55
Fans of cult electronic duo The Postal Service
got an unexpected surprise this week when the band announced they would be reforming for a series of shows, ten years after the release of their debut LP.
The side project of Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard
, The Postal Service's first album Give Up
slipped out quietly in 2003 and soon became an underground favourite of the burgeoning online music scene including our friends at Drowned In Sound
. Fans have been awaiting a follow up for years, so this week's announcement of headline shows at Primavera
and a reissue of the album with brand new, unheard material more than makes up for the wait.
To celebrate their return we'd like you to compile with the Ultimate Postal Service Playlist.
You could go for:
*Your favourite Postal Service tracks, b-sides and rarities
*Acts who have covered the Postal Service perhaps Amanda Palmer
, Iron & Wine
or Ben Folds
*Other Music from Ben Gibbard's canon, from Death Can For Cutie to his solo LP
*Artists they've remixed included Feist
, The Flaming Lips
and The Cribs
*Other electronic duos or side projects
*Other acts from Sub Pop
stable: The Shins
(the only act other than Postal Service to have gone platinum on the label) or even Flight Of The Conchords
