typoadventure This album crystallizes the feel of rainy days into a sound byte you can listen to whenever you're having a grey day, regardless of whether it's actually raining or not. Such good feels. Favorite track: This Place Is A Prison.

about

On November 25th, in perfect harmony with the release of the new Postal Service documentary, Everything Will Change, we will be reissuing the single LP version of this classic album, which has been created using the 10th-anniversary remastered tapes.

The Postal Service is a long-distance collaboration between Ben Gibbard (singer/guitarist from Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (Jimmy recorded the Beachwood Sparks album Make the Cowboy Robots Cry and also records under the name Dntel). Ben and Jimmy sent music back and forth, between California and Washington, each adding new elements until the record was complete. The result is a sweetly charming, largely electronic album with a warmth not typically associated with the clicks-and-beeps set. As an added bonus, additional vocals on the record are provided by Jen Wood and Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis.
