The Postal Service - Give Up (2003)
Updated: Mar 26
In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy go deep on one of the most well-regarded side projects of the 2000s, Give Up from indie supergroup The Postal Service. With Dntel synths, Ben Gibbard’s vocals, and Jenny Lewis’, well, everything, Give Up withstands the test of time as something greater than a pit-stop before Death Cab for Cutie blew up. Find out more about how the recording process fed into the name, the weird concert performance that resulted, and why despite teases we never got another album from the trio on this week’s podcast.
