No I'm not reviewing Death Cab For Cutie's new album. Or their old ones for that matter.
The reason I'm posting that picture of their albums is...
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE ARE COMING TO MALAYSIA ON AUGUST 12!!!!
News courtesy of two sources: Cyberred "Mrs. Jeff Buckley" Reta, who SCREAMED at me excitedly via SMS (well, if it's possible to scream using SMS, that is)) at 1am on SAturd.. er.. Sunday morning about it; and the AWESOME Pirates of the Bargain Bin, probably the best MALAYSIAN mp3 blog ever (come to think of it, I don't think there ARE any other Malaysian mp3 blogs around worth mentioning...).
No idea when the tickets will be available yet though. More details when I learn more, ok?
PS: For the record, I got really annoyed listening to Ben Gibbard's falsetto on the new album. And what is up with that 4.5-minute long intro for I Will Possess Your Heart, eh?
