I can’t believe it’s going to be August in just a few short days. Summer’s slipping away faster than I can keep up. I’m pretty excited for the fall months, they’re going to be pretty brilliant to say the least.
But for the moment, I have to give it to the weather, it’s been pretty lovely. I have had the good intentions for quite some time now to go see Molson Ampitheatre gigs from outside of the venue, not so much “seeing” as it is listening.
The sound from behind the venue was a little muffled, but with a band that I’m so at home with, I can think of all the tiny details without actually hearing them. A little bit of a mind mess.
The thing I love about Death Cab for Cutie is that no matter how big they get, the collosal venues they play, they always play older material. I was so happy to hear “Photobooth” and a tune or two off of The Photo Album (maybe only one).
I hadn’t got around to listening to Codes and Keys but I know it’s spotless, just from hearing it live.
Death Cab have to be one of the most consistent bands I’ve ever wrapped my ears around. It’s really mind boggling to consider just how eloquent and different each of their progressive releases are. All the albums are different, newer ones without a doubt more mature while the old ones have just as much sophistication and quality that the new ones possess.
I arrived half an hour late, so I assume I missed “Tiny Vessels,” a song I just couldn’t see them not playing.
Laura and I were surprised by their performance of show closer “Transatlanticism.” We shouldnt’ve been, that seems to be a closer for the band more than not.
I have really been in love with the song “The Sound of Settling,” released close to ten years ago, it’s so god damn mature and smart.
“Our youth is fleeing, old age is just around the bend and I can’t wait to grow old. I’ll sit and wonder of ever love I could’ve had, If I only thought of something charming to say.”
I was tickled to hear the tune Johnathan Rice inspire – “Grapevine Fires”:
Death Cab are a band I can dive into so effortlessly. Likng them is easy, I was amazed to realise I never stopped liking them in the last seven or eight years.
