I was looking for something that reminded me of The Postal Service. Maybe it's because it is becoming abundently clear that Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamberello will not be making a second Postal Service record. Someone else is going to have to pick up the slack. Maybe it's because what Ben Gibbard does is both achingly unique and not hard at all. His voice, the overly-candid lyrics - they are as difficult as they are democratic. Anyone can do it - he just does it very, very well.
Faded Paper Figures sound like The Postal Service. Which is good. Because I needed this.
Listen :: Faded Paper Figures - "North By North"
