SUCH GREAT HEIGHTS
Back in 2003, few would have guessed that Sub Pop’s biggest-selling release since Nirvana’s Bleach would come from a Death Cab for Cutie side project, an indie-electronic duo that paired frontman Ben Gibbard with Headset’s Jimmy Tamborello. Nevertheless, under the name the Postal Service, the band gave the label its second platinum album, never cracking Billboard’s top 100 but slowly accumulating sales as it circulated among high schoolers at study halls and teenagers about to go to college. Those teenagers have since grown up and moved to Brooklyn, and this weekend you’ll find many of them at the Barclays Center for a special delivery from the reunited pair.
