Give Up

The Postal Service


CD

We're sorry, but this product is no longer available.


2005, Sub Pop

All 10 tracks are exercises in smooth beauty, with Gibbard's inviting voice perfectly complementing Tamborello's unique and charming programming, and guest vocals from Jen Wood and Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis adding a gentle layer of sweetness to many of the songs. Though it's tempting to call it an "'80s-sounding" record because of its keyboard-driven pop sensibilities, there's nothing retro about "Give Up," save for a few sounds here and there and "Nothing Better," a duet with Wood inspired by The Human League's "Don't You Want Me." Fans of Death Cab will hear faint echoes of Gibbard's main band in The Postal Service, but overall it's a completely different experience.
