They are currently signed to Atlantic Records.
This was released by Atlantic on 30 August, The result was For Your Own Special Sweetheart, inarguably the most polished and fully realized album of Dischord alumnus Jawbox's career. Fast forward ten years and you find Barsuk's Death Cab for Cutie in the same position, making the same move.
A new label, a larger crowd thanks to their repeated appearances on The OC , and a side project of Ben Gibbard Postal Service that very well overshadowed the success of his main project.
All of the moves were perfectly aligned to take the little band that could into the rock stratosphere. Plans definitely comes close to that mark, but falls slightly short. In comparison to the dry, raw production of Transatlanticism, Plans is warm and polished, the kind of album expected from a band obsessed with the sound of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours.
Chris Walla does an amazing job bringing the group's sound in a different direction than before without compromising too many of the things that made the group sound great to begin with.
Thematically, Plans is the Death Cab for Cutie suitable for graduate students, world-weary and wiser from their experiences, realizing they can no longer be love-starved somethings without a clue yet hopelessly cursed to face the same issues. And there's merit to be had in acknowledging that maturity, for even blink figured out their age and released their "serious" album.
Gibbard's wispy, poetic lyrics which could easily have been stolen from Aimee Mann's dressing room while she wasn't looking still remain an artery from which the rest of the band beats and are some of his finest ever, but this time around the band aligns itself more with a series of emotional murmurs rather than a heart attack. The album winds its way from one ballad to the next, with brief stopovers at moderately up-tempo numbers to help break things up a bit.
And it's this sense of resignation that either makes or breaks the album, depending on which Death Cab for Cutie is your favorite: But those hoping for a bit more — for the bar to be raised higher — might find this a mildly predictable exercise in Gibbard exorcising the demons of Phil Collins that haunt him.
Plans is both a destination and a transitional journey for the group, one that sees the fulfillment of years of toiling away to develop their ideas and sound. But it's with the completion of those ideas that band is faced with a new set of crossroads and challenges to tread upon: Which road they'll take will make all the difference.
