Death Cab For Cutie Codes And Keys on 180g 2LP

Beloved Rock-Pop Band Gets Lush, Arty on Upbeat 2011 Studio Effort

Leader 
Ben Gibbard Chronicles Path from Apprehension to Commitment and Happiness

Tremendous Sonics: Group Eschews Live Approach and Utilizes Studio As Instrument

Codes and Keys is the seventh studio album from the Washington-based quartet Death Cab For Cutie and follow-up to 2008's Narrow Stairs. The album was mixed by producer Alan Moulder (My Bloody Valentine, Jesus and Mary Chain, Smashing Pumpkins) and features the single "You Are A Tourist."

In contrast to the band's previous albums, on which love never seemed to work out, leader Ben Gibbard channels his own personal experiences over the past few years, going from a disconcerted romantic to a happily married man. Gibbard tied the knot with singer/actress Zooey Deschanel during the album's recording.

Spread over four sides of high-quality 180g vinyl and packaged in a gatefold sleeve, the sonics convey the sound of a group that's come into its own and realized how the studio can serve as its own instrument.

"In contrast to the live-in-the-studio immediacy of Death Cab’s previous album, “Narrow Stairs,” the new album is about turning the studio into an instrument – a hive of sound that suggests background noise from a distant freeway or a disturbance just over the horizon. Producer-guitarist Chris Walla is the primary architect, and he showcases the versatility of the band’s rhythm section."

--Greg Kot, Chicago Tribune, May 27, 2011
