Death Cab for Cutie talked with Stereogum about preparing for their final album with Chris Walla.
When we finished the last record he had actually suggested that maybe we work with an outside person the next time, just as a way to shake things up. Hes produced all of our albums, so hes always kind of had the right of first refusal anyway. When we got started on this record he just sort of resumed the producer role, but as we got a little further into the process he was like, Well, maybe Im not the best guy for this record, and that was really fine. It wasnt like we suddenly had the rug pulled out from under us or anything. We werent suddenly in a state of free fall.

Chris Walla has left Death Cab for Cutie.
Short version: Im leaving Death Cab for Cutie. My last show with the band will be September 13, 2014, at the Rifflandia Festival in Victoria, BC. I hope you guys can make it. Longer version: I think I long for the unknown. It might be that simple. I will miss being a quarter of this band, and will support whatever course Death Cab for Cutie chooses from here. I am profoundly grateful to Ben, Nick, and Jason, for the experiences that define my adult life. Truly grateful, beyond words. Thank you.

Hit the replies to watch a video for Budweiser and Jay Z's "Made in America" video series that spotlights Seattle. The video features Ben Gibbard, Tacocat, La Luz, and the staff of Sub Pop talking abot their city. More episodes will be airing leading up to the Made in America Festival later this year.

Read my review and check out my photos of Day 2 of the Boston Calling Music Festival, which featured performances from Death Cab For Cutie, The Decemberists, Frank Turner and more.
Frank Turner & The Sleeping Souls may have put on the best performance of Boston Calling. The pace was set immediately as they opened with "Photosynthesis," in which Turner wailed on his trusty acoustic and guitarist Ben Lloyd ripped a solo on the electric mandolin. It was Turner's 1,568th show, as he proudly told the audience, but his boundless energy (perhaps owed to his hardcore roots) made it feel one-of-a-kind.

Ben Gibbard mashed up ODB's "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" and DJ Kool's "Let Me Clear My Throat." You can stream Frankenstein's monster in the replies.
