Review of The Postal Service – Give Up (10th Anniversary Edition) (Sub Pop / Outside Music)

The Postal ServiceSince its release a decade ago, The Postal Service’s sole full-length album quietly sold more than half a million copies however despite talk of a follow-up effort, it never materialized. Consisting of Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello, Give Up’s quirky mix of pop and electronica is as infectious as ever. Included with the original album is a second disc featuring a generous helping of 15 songs including live tracks, remixes and covers of the Flaming Lips, John Lennon and Phil Collins.
