Ben Gibbard's Pulse

Pulse of the Twin Cities interviews Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, as well as giving a readable history of the band:

I think it’s beyond awesome that people have an emotional response to what we do and that wouldn’t change if it were a hundred people or 100,000, but it’s crazy when you meet people at our level of success, or even slightly less, who carry themselves like Robert Plant. There are some people around like that and it’s just a total joke. The example you gave of Mac McCaughan is perfect—I’ve always loved Superchunk and bought all their records. I remember seeing them as a teenager and it was such a huge moment because I realized, “Hey, I can do this. I can be in a band, and music can be played by normal people.”

This guy deserves superstardom... go out and buy Transatlanticism and The Postal Service's "Give Up" today, and support this bright and goodhearted young man.
