When I went through my itunes library I came across a lot of albums I have not gotten the chance to hear. One album stood out way more today than any other. Death Cab for Cutie has been one of my favorite bands since my senior year of high school. I was lucky enough to have been able to see them live downtown in Chicago 2 years ago. They were amazing live, but I realized that I only knew their latest 3 albums and was a little disappointed in myself when they played a few older songs I had never heard in my life. I promised myself I would check out their earlier albums but just never really got around to doing so. Last Christmas, however, I received their second album: “We have the Facts and We’re Voting Yes.” I decided that tonight would be the night that I listened to this album!

I followed my usual game-plan of lying down on my bed with my laptop and headphones, except this time I had Wheat Thins instead of Goldfish. This album became my favorite from Death Cab for Cutie. Every song was perfect to me from start to finish. Death Cab’s later albums have a very poppy sound to them, while this one had a much eerier indie sounds instead. A few of my favorites on the album include: The Employment Pages, Lowell, MA, 405, and Company Calls. I would definitely recommend checking these songs out, especially if you are already a fan of Death Cab.

This album definitely gave me “the warm and fuzzies,” and I am so happy I finally got around to giving it a chance. I guess the only obstacle I have found in the way of my goal is my social life. People think it is weird if you sit in your room and listen to music by yourself on a weekend. I think I might try and listen with a friend sometime soon, I just hope they don’t distract me from the music. This goal is still going very well for me. It is great to finally set aside time to listen to music I want to hear. I’m glad to report that I am still totally obsessed with Dear and the Headlights, as well! Hooray for Leisure!
