New Death Cab For Cutie - "Cath" (Live On BBC6)

You've argued about the four-minute instrumental intro and weighed in on the rectangularly collagist cover, but here's something that should bring Death Cab fans together: a new tune, about a girl, performed solo acoustic by Ben Gibbard. It may waft by without much impact at first, but give "Cath" a second and third glance and it will possess your heart. If it feels too slight for you, though, remember it's just a live session for BBC 6; the studio version may feature rampant jams and bass vamps yet.

Death Cab, Decemberists, Breeders Hit Oregon

It's not a festival per se, as it's got no fancy name to call its own (well, okay, at least part of it is the "Wells Fargo Concert Seriesamp", but that's not really a festival, and is definitely not a stellar name), and there's no particular financial incentive to not pick and choose which days you'd like to attend and which you'd rather sit out. - Source

Heroes Taps Wilco, Death Cab, My Morning Jacket, The Jesus & Mary Chain For Soundtrack

Heroes doesn't normally give us a lot of reasons to mention it, as pop music is rarely incorporated into their scenes about staving off the apocalypse. There was that one time where some girls were double-dutching to M.I.A.'s "Boyz" (before Kala became the Reminder of dance music) but that hardly seemed worth a post. Usually the deepest we go with the show here is when Peter Patrelli turns up in Fergie videos.

But apparently none of that really matters when it comes to compiling the show's soundtrack, because it's hella cool and hella full of stuff that has absolutely no connection to the narrative (okay, Bowie's "Heroes" is a logical inclusion). The key question for OST compilers these days seems to be "what will make us appear cooler" -- and in Heroes' case, they've succeeded here, most notably scoring the Jesus & Mary Chain's first studio recording in a decade ("All Things Must Pass") and a new and exclusive tune from Wilco, "Glad It's Over." That's in addition to previously unreleased tunes from Imogen Heap, Brighton Port Authority (feat. Iggy Pop), and Panic At The Disco, as reported by Billboard. To throw more coolness at you: there's a tune from the Chemical Brothers (feat. Spank Rock) and oldies from Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Death Cab, the New Pornographers, do you really need us to go on? It's out 3/18 on, what else, NBC Records. Check the tracklist: - Source

New Cribs - "I'm A Realist (Postal Service Remix)"

The Brothers Jarman take a break from their apparent quest to make a video for every song from their great Men's Needs, Women's Needs, Whatever long enough to have someone do a remix of latest single "I'm A Realist." But not just any "someone": this comes from Laptop For Cutie project the Postal Service. And what separates a Postal Service Remix from the more frequently occurring Dntel remix? Well Jimmy's gotta be joined by Ben, so on this sustain-synth smeared, thinly clicked reworking Gibbard makes sure to color up the scene by singing "bum," "bum," and of course "bum." Obviously Jimmy could have/probably did just crib those monosyllabic melodies from any of a number of Death Cab tunes, but still the sound is more Postal Service than it is say James Figurine. - Source
