Coming off their work on Dntel's beautiful This Is the Dream of Evan and Chan, Jimmy Tamborello and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard team up again for their full-length debut as Postal Service, Give Up. Instead of covering that EP's territory again, with this album the duo crafts a poppier, new wave-inflected sound that recalls Tamborello's work with Figurine more than Dntel's lovely subtlety.
Thing is, Give Up is a perfect album. It’s not a perfect album because it’s flawless, it’s a perfect album because its flaws so perfectly suited the mindset of the record’s eventual audience. Placing both of these stylistic re-imaginings together strikes at the heart of the influence Give Up spread: both acoustic guitar troubadours and mixing board virtuosos were inspired by it.
