Death Cab for Cutie

Death Cab for Cutie

The last time Death Cab for Cutie played in Bend, in the opinion of the 2008 album "Narrow stairs" poured in, hailing as a sharp, dark and experimental. Except for the album was not really such a thing. The song was one of a long, ominous intro, and had some tough lyrical parts, but the most "narrow stairs" sounded like Death Cab.

Three years later, the Seattle-based pop-rock quartet return to the city (see "If you go"), again riding the wave of a new version, Death Cab seventh full-length "codes and keys," is from Tuesday. "If you told me that ... it just sounds like a Death Cab record," drummer Jason McGerr said in a telephone interview last week: "I might say that listening to a bad stereo."

The band is still essential components: the singing guitarist Ben Gibbard and Chris Walla, a reliable rhythm section McGerr and bassist Nick Harmer, Gibbard and the earworm melodies and plenty of heartbreak / love lyrics. This is the formula that propelled the quartet to the rise in the late '90s indie-pop upstarts play amphitheaters, and embeds the "Twilight" soundtrack.
