Death Cab For Cutie Talk New Album (Recap)


.
Death Cab For Cutie Talk New Album was a top story on Wednesday, December 15. Here is our recap: (Gibson) Death Cab For Cutie say their new album, Codes and Keys, will be released in the spring of 2011. Frontman Ben Gibbard has likened the disc to the ambient expressionism of Brian Eno's Another Green World, but bassist Nick Harmer says the group hasn't dispensed with guitars altogether.

"There are definitely guitars on this record," Harmer told Stereogum, in a recent interview. "There are just less of them than before and we're using them in different ways this time. Ben was really inspired by writing on acoustic guitar and on a piano, so often those parts become voices or keyboard lines, rather than guitar parts. We really experimented with piecing the songs together in different ways and using the studio differently, so this a much less guitar-centric album than we've ever made before."
Harmer went on to say the new album is more radiant in spirit than the band's previous disc, 2008's Narrow Stairs. "The emotional spectrum feels much wider this time," he explained. "The last record was much darker and was much more closely connected to what Ben had been going through in his life at the time. I think there's a lot more light in this record." -
