John Vanderslice, Pedro the Lion and Built to Spill. Death Cab's newest LP 'Codes and Keys' is masterwork. Thoughtful, introspective lyrics built upon their musical abstractions slip their hooks into you like The Postal Service and Silver Scooter on a vision quest in the Queen Charlotte Islands. Death Cab have an absolute understanding of the development and construction of an LP, as the crucial placement of tracks 2, 4 and 7 anchor the remaining songs in the timeless path of their rock n' roll time machine.
