I hope that a fair amount of you remember The Postal Service
, the incredible electronic side project duo featuring Ben Gibbard
of Death Cab for Cutie
and producer Jimmy Tamborello which debuted all the way back in 2003 with their album Give Up
. Well the group grew a powerful following through the grapevine over years, yet never released any new music. Well today that changes, with signs of a possible reunion and new music. They have launched a new website with the simple message shown above, which could only mean a possible reunion. I don't want to get my hopes up to high before an official release date out of Ben Gibbard's mouth, but this defintely opens up some possibilities. Lots of New Music? Potential Coachella play??
The group has announced that they will be releasing a deluxe edition of their album Give Up next month through Sub Pop. There is also confirmation from Billboard that the group will be performing at this year's Coachella Music Festival!!
To celebrate this good sign, I have picked out a handful of great tracks from The Postal Service
. Get ready for a blast of Nostalgia. If you don't have their album Give Up
, or just need a new copy, I wouldn't wait any longer and find a copy your own way or through iTunes Here
