Death Cab For Cutie

2020 Charity Shop Purchase 12 - Death Cab For Cutie - Plans

My local Charity Shop is now doing 5 CDs for a pound. On my last visit I could only see two that piqued my curiosity. They still charged me a pound! I decided to let it go.

One of the two was Plans the 5th album by Death Cab For Cutie from 2005 on Atlantic/Barsuk.
A band named after a Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band song and obviously a name which sticks in the memory even if you are not familiar with their work.

They first crossed my radar when their song A Movie Script Ending appeared on Treats a Barsuk Records sampler When I featured it I said that some further exploration was required so it was a no- brainer when I saw this one.

It was released to generally favourable reviews. I think that it is probably one which will benefit from a few plays but after an initial listen it looks like a keeper.
After a slow start I Will Follow You Into the Dark subseqently became their best selling single to date. It was the track which most caught my attention first time out.

  1. I think they're a band that does take a bit of effort, but often rewarding if you can be bothered to spend the time.
