Oh, how much I loved the band The Postal Service!
Their first and only album Give Up was already released in 2003. So when I discovered them around 2007 I regularly checked their website for new songs, but always without any success.
I almost forgot about them until I went to their website to find a video for our postcard project. It is mandatory with the band’s name!
Now, guess what? At the beginning of this year they announced to release a 10th anniversary edition of their old album! It includes all the tracks from back than, two new songs, remixes and covers by other artists.
Of course, you can question the necessity of a reissue of a complete CD with only little new input by the band itself. Still, for this blog post it is just perfect! To all new and old listeners, click here for their latest track Tattered Line of String.
And finally about their band name: As the two members sent their demos back and forth by the USPS (No dropbox! No WeTransfer!), they decided to name themselves The Postal Service!
PS: If you want to hear more about their Give Up: 10th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, NPR featured the band on All Songs Considered.
