Death Cab For Cutie – Narrow Stairs

Last night I got the deluxe edition of Death Cab for Cutie’s newest album Narrow Stairs from the iTunes store. If you are a fan of the band you will love the first single “I will possess your heart” it’s quite fantastic and just a tad different from their usual sound (listen to the full 8 min + version rather than the 4 min radio edit).

Overall the album is pretty rad, it has more of morose tone to it, and many of the songs deal with relationships coming to an end, something I can relate to a lot at the moment. Their sounds has evolved into something more like Mogwai (at least in “I will possess your heart”) but with the same vocal style as death cab are known for.

I’ve been mentioning a lot of free music, such as Trent Reznor’s latest album, but I recommend purchasing this album if it tickles your fancy because not everything can be free and some things are worth paying for.

[UPDATE] After listening to Narrow Stairs for a couple of days now I’ve come to love the album even more. Some tracks that are now reaching out to me are: Long Division, You Can Do Better Than Me, and The Ice is Getting Thinner.

This is one of those albums that grows on you as you keep listening to it. Seriously, go buy this album.
