New Thingz:

To celebrate their new release Narrow Stairs, out today, Death Cab for Cutie plays on The Late Show With David Letterman (CBS), check your local listings...because I won't. Sorry!

Pitchfork gives DCfC's seventh studio album release an even 6.0, Rolling Stone (as well as Spin, AP, The Independent, The Guardian, The Times and Kerrang!...) gives it a 4/5 stars, and Absolute Punk dotes on them with a 90%. While the album proves to be darker and a bit different compared to previous releases it still stands pretty strong on its own two feet. The literary themes still provide happiness in my heart, not to mention the fact that Chris Walla's production is outstanding. More on this album and my personal feelings later!


Also getting around the late night talk show circuit this week? British cutie Kate Nash is playing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (NBC) on Wednesday and also on Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC) on Friday.


Tom Campesinos of Los Campesinos! has remixed Tokyo Police Club's "Tessellate" and it is now available on a brand new Tessellate 7 inch and also on the limited edition version of Elephant Shell. Listen to the Tom Campesinos! remix HERE.

In other TPC news, the guys have a new video out now for "In a Cave" which was part of "MTVU and Best Film on Campus" competition. Director Olan Rogers was chosen by TPC for his "cup on a string telephone" idea of directing. Here is the final result:
