In other news, a while ago I acquired a copy of a Death Cab for Cutie LP apparently called Directions. Turns out it's not really an LP, but instead someone who had just the audio track to the DVD called Directions (which goes with the actual LP Plans). That worked out, I picked up from the charming stststutter the actual LP, but she forewarned me about if I was looking for "new" sound Death Cab, or "old" sound Death Cab.
So! For those who are familiar with Death Cab for Cutie (mgrasso? allegedly? stststutter?), what should I go for next, and what exactly is this old/new split? As in, what was different about "old" Death Cab when compared to the newer stuff?
PS: "I'll Follow You Into the Dark" is one of those songs that should end up on every other mix. But maybe that's just me.. well, me and its Robyn Hitchcock-ian, Michael Penn-ian, John Linnell-ian chorus.
If Heaven and Hell decide that they both are satisfied
And illuminate the 'no's on their vacancy signs,
If there's no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
PPS: Marilyn Manson does a Ghetto-Goth version of Tainted Love? (via rottensick) His screechy-voice bit at the end really could've worked out better if there'd been some sort've movement change to the music to match it.
