As a 31-year old on this site, my heart is skipping a beat reading this news. 90's alternative rock is my groove and will be my go-to decade of music as I become an old crusty man.

So essentially Death Cab has progressively gotten worse?

If I had to rank studio albums:
1) The Photo Album
2) Transatlanticism
3) We Have the Facts We're Voting Yes

As an elder on this site who still remembers when Transatlanticism came out my sophomore year of college - I've been a long time Death Cab fan.

I've enjoyed the ride of albums they've put out...

Also - any service that relies on another service like GMail (who was bought by a competitor to a Google product) is at risk to being gone anytime Google wants.

Tried that.

It totally messes up your GMail inbox though - hated it and turned it off.

Sure, but very limited in scope of supported devices and availability of updates, restrictions by App Store, Google Play, etc.

There's a large contingent of Windows devices (like mine used for work...

As someone who has had this nick since I joined in 2003 - glad to see there's still love for this band with folks on Abspunk.

Sorry - it's funded by Lightbank, which includes Brad Keywell and Eric Lekofsky of Groupon fame.

It's from the same owners/founders as Groupon - so my hunch is not very positive.

I liked when they spaced out the drops like last year. Gave you time to listen to every album in the drop and get to know it. They have had so many drops lately. I don't know how anyone can listen...

This area of Chicago will welcome the economic activity of this weekend fest for sure. Trying to figure out my commute home from here... Kind of a train dead zone.

Funny, the people who don't listen to the whole thing think it's boring.
