The lost Postal Service audition tape

So this is pretty much perfect. It’s been 10 years since the Postal Service released its mega indie hit album, Give Up. Go way back to the band’s original “auditions” in this new clip.

Also, the band, which of course features Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard on lead vocals, just announced a second Bay Area date later this year (the first one quickly sold out). The Postal Service will play Berkeley’s Greek Theater July 26 (sold out) and July 27 (not yet sold out). Tickets and additional info on those here. Specifically, get tickets to the July 27 show here.
