"The District Sleeps Alone" is one of the moodiest highlights of the Postal Service's moody 2003 album Give Up. The track features deeply sad vocals by Ben Gibbard and some inspired musical backing full of tripping strings, sweeping female harmony vocals, and skittery beats provided by Jimmy Tamborello. The two remixes of the track on the single don't improve upon the original much but are interesting: DJ Downfall's "Persistent Beat" mix adds a persistent beat, some fluttery sequencers, and a jolt of energy while John Tejada's mix adds a housey beat and some slide guitar. Both mixes keep the vocals intact. The fourth song is an imaginative and subdued take on the Flaming Lips' "Suddenly Everything Has Changed."
unkown now but not for long
these guys are awesome, the side project of Death Cab for Cutie is really has shown a more trancey sound with postal service and i have all their tunes, the remixes on this EP make me like this group even more. they may be obscure now but in sometime, these guys will hit it big for sure. enjoy the album Give UP as well, if you like this try Death Cab also. you wont be dissapointed.
Only Worth The One
The Postal Servies is amazing, but the only truely brilliant song on this album is The District Sleeps Alone Tonight (Beat Mix). It lets you listen to the lyrics so much better than the original. Fully gives me goosebumps every time I hear it.
