Death Cab for Cutie - Live on "Sound Opinions"
(via CPR's Flickr Page)
Based on the fact that their sixth album Narrow Stairs, which was their first to debut at number one on the Billboard album charts, has received a goodly amount of positive reviews, it's not just the heart of the unwitting recipient of Ben Gibbard's nefarious attentions that DCfC possess. Rather, it would seem that many music aficionados are fond of the Seattle-based quartet as well; two of them being Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis, Chicago music critics who host NPR's self-described "world's only rock n' roll talk show" Sound Opinions.
KotN'DeRog recently invited the band for a performance and interview, which both recently took place at the Chicago Cultural Center. The results of that session were recently aired on "Sound Opinions" this past weekend, and you can listen to the show in its entirety here. The group talk to Greg and Jim about their career trajectory, their creative and recording process, and that little TV show they were on a few years back. Listen to Death Cab perform second Narrow Stairs single "Cath" at the top of the post.
