Seattle emo rockers Death Cab for Cutie released their new album "Plans" today. I've been waiting for this release for a different reason than I await most releases. DCFC songs represent masterful songwriting - the true test in my book. Lyrics that I would devour as a reader. Songs that make me want to take over the mixing board and bring down everything but the vocals. From the opening line of the first track "If I could open my arms/and span the length of the isle of Manhattan/I'd bring it to where you are/and make a lake of the East River and Hudson" this album is a refreshing reminder that my generation has songwriters who will be remembered for decades to come.
