Hey all you sad-ass people who are starting to get nostalgic for those grand old days of the late 90s and early 2000s! Do you remember when you used to watch shows at those precious few venues that allowed under-21-year-old bands to play, not drink, and then go home and listen to emo music as you pined away for the cute girl who plays bass in your friend’s band? Well, now you can relive every depressing minute of Death Cab for Cutie’s musical catalog from that period and remember exactly how it felt when you would spend most of your time desperately in love with girls that you never built up the courage to talk to.
Artist in Residence has announced that they will be re-educating the world on DCFC’s early work by reissuing You Can Play These Songs with Chords (first time ever on vinyl!), Something About Airplanes, We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes, the Forbidden Love EP (first time ever on vinyl!), The Photo Album, The Stability EP (first time ever on vinyl!), and Transatlanticism as one indie-powered, sorrow-packed, limited-to-1,500-copies, remastered, cloth-bound vinyl box set so that you can spend your weekend reminiscing about your glory days.
To make the whole thing that much more bittersweet, not only is the set pretty limited, but it’s also hand-numbered and signed by the entire band. However, if you start spending too much time living in the past and thinking about all your old crushes, then your wife is gonna get a little mad.
