Album Review

"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."

Customer Reviews

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.


Formed: 2001

Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '00s

Named for the courier service that allowed them to trade song ideas while living in different locales, the Postal Service were a short-lived supergroup featuring Jimmy Tamborello (leader of the electronica bands Dntel and Figurine) and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard. Adding to the project's star status were Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and former Tattle Tale member Jen Wood, both of whom contributed backing vocals to the band's mix of bubbling electronica and indie pop. Tamborello and Gibbard first...
