Death Cab’s Something About Airplanes Being Re-Released Next Month

posted by on October 1 at 11:08 AM

Just in time for the holidays!:

Barsuk Records is pleased to announce that we will be re-issuing Death Cab for Cutie’s classic 1998 debut album, Something About Airplanes, on November 25th. This limited deluxe 10-year anniversary CD edition will include a bonus disc featuring a recently-unearthed recording of the band’s first-ever Seattle show, a February 1998 set at the legendary venue The Crocodile Café. The reissue will also feature beautifully redesigned artwork, including extensive liner notes by noted musician and writer Sean Nelson (whose band Harvey Danger was the headliner of the bonus disc show, and who sings lead vocals on the DCfC set’s never-before-heard cover of The Smiths’ “Sweet and Tender Hooligan”).

I think this is awesome. Something About Airplanes, still, is one of my favorite Death Cab records, and I’m so glad that it will get a moment in spotlight now that the band has gone and gotten all famous. (For the record: We Have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes is my favorite DC record, and Something About Airplanes is a close second. Transatlanticism and Narrow Stairs each have really solid moments, and I will never, ever like Plans.)

Wow, you didn't mention The Photo Album. My favorite never gets the love it deserves.

Oh yes! The Photo Album. I do like that record. I always forget about that record, though. Weird... But I do like it. I think more than Transatlanticism, even.
