New Death Cab for Cutie - "I Will Possess Your Heart"

Say hello to the nice people, Death Cab.

Such good boys.

Alan at *Sixeyes has been kind enough to share the first single from the forthcoming Death Cab for Cutie record, Narrow Stairs. "I Will Possess Your Heart" is not what I expected from them, and frankly that's refreshing. Rather than their conventional emotive pop, the boys have pulled off an 8+ minute track with a full four minutes of building sound before Ben Gibbard's voice makes a peep. I wonder if Colin Meloy and Gibbard have been sharing an iPod? I like the change in direction, and hope there's more exploration on the album.

Ah, that's too bad. Nervous about leaks, I guess? You know this is one of those records that will be all over the place.

So you really liked it?
I agree with this guy who says it's a big disappointment.

The things that person hates about it are the very reasons I like it.
