Our Two’Fer Tuesday post today is the final one about the 1oth anniversary edition of Death Cab For Cutie’s Transatlanticism album. Today I’m featuring the title track. As with the past few posts…..first the demo and then the version as released in 2003. I really like this album and I’m sorry to end see this series of posts end.
I hope this series of posts has convinced you to buy the 10th anniversary album but……if they haven’t……listen to the complete original album below and I think you will be convinced. Enjoy!
As promised, here is another taste of the 1oth anniversary edition of Transatlanticism. Today I’m featuring We Looked Like Giants…..first as a demo and then as released in 2003. As with Title and Registration, this is really good stuff that I think you will enjoy……
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s Two’fer Tuesday post when I will feature the demo and released versions of the title track from this great album.
So……Death Cab For Cutie is another group that my son introduced me to. He’s been a fan for a long time and has seen them live multiple times. I’m a more recent convert but have since become a big fan. The band recently re-released their album 2003 album, Transatlanticism, in a special 10th anniversary edition. The cool thing about the re-release is that they included the original demo version of each song on the album, hence the name of this post….New-Old Music. The demo versions are amazing and in many cases I like them as much or more than the released versions.
Over the next couple of days I will feature demo versions of songs from Transatlanticism along with their matching released versions. I hope you enjoy these posts and highly recommend that you buy the special 10th anniversary version of the album. I got it in MP3 format from Amazon and only paid $6.99.
Today let’s listen to one of my favorite songs, Title and Registration. First up is the demo version followed immediately with the originally released version.
Today’s New Years Song offering, The New Year, comes from Death Cab for Cutie. I really like this song and hope you enjoy it as well.
Our 2012 end of the year music review continues with an award called, The Best New Music That I Had Never Heard. My music friend Gerard from the Netherlands was nice enough to turn me on to some music from his country. I can honestly say that I am really enjoying all of the music but my favorite so far is a song called Liefdesliedjes by a group called De Jazzpolitie (from what Gerard has told me, the song title translates into Songs of Love). Let’s listen….
As I have mentioned to Gerard, the song reminds me a little of Mark Knopfler but at the same time it is unique. The instrumentation is amazing with all kind of interesting things going on in the background. You really need to listen to the song on headphones to truly appreciate it. As an example, there is a little bass run around 2:08 that just knocks my socks off. I promise to share more of the music from Gerard during the coming year.
Much thanks to Gerard for his friendship and for sharing his music!
