Tiny Mix Tapes
The battle of the appropriation of independent coolness is part of the 20th century, and this album is boldly stamped with a release date from the 21st. This was the first album I bought in the new millennium, and so far it's the most fascinating.

AllMusic
Loud and soft, or most of all both, and plenty of points in between, DCFC write and record finished songs that emote, that do more than merely fill a slot in a form in a preconceived genre. In short, they're superb. And getting greater.

The Seattle band is catching on and gaining a name. And sure, you could make the argument that "For What Reason" or "Lowell, MA" might fit on the radio, but We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes is something you want to discover and cherish with no strings attached, and pass it on as eagerly.

The five re-recorded cuts from You Can Play These Songs With Chords, subtly streamlined, showcase the band's new emphasis on delicacy over dissonance.

I feel like I've been transported to a grey autumn day in the early 2000s midwest.

The production on this is really interesting and this shows they had potential to become a greater band, which they did

After their debut album Something About Airplanes definitely proved to be an album with songs on it, Death Cab for Cutie found themselves in uncertain times. Fresh out of college and thousands of dollars in debt, the band moved out of Bellingham and into Seattle, leaving their drummer behind. Unsure of their own futures, let alone the band's, they would spend the months of 1999 living in their parents' houses slowly working towards a new album, with Ben taking over drumming duties and Chris now ... read more
