Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

Death Cab for Cutie

These guys are good, especially on their album Plans. I'm not a super fan, but their lyrics are thoughtful, the lead singer's voice is good. And the band can move from loud, to restrained, to this wall of sound as needed. That takes chops.

The downside is the level of angst is almost too much for some of their songs. The anthem of a few million teenagers over their 18+ years of performance.

Sounds like: Something you'd hear on The OC. Like for real. Also, the Shins, and maybe a hint of Bright Eyes.

Lyrics:

Love of mine
Someday you will die,
but I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark
