These box sets are killing me! So many good sets coming out this year. I mean if you are somewhat of a fussy hipster, like myself, then you’ve been saying for years that these are the true Death Cab albums. Then people look at you with anger, but nonetheless, these are really really great Death Cab albums. I know Transatlanticism was a must have vinyl for me. Ok there’s tons of details, i’ll just let them do the talkin.

The Details

Only 1500 pieces. Individually numbered & signed by the band. Vinyl box set includes recordings never before available on vinyl. Available for pre-order now.

This deluxe box set contains all of Death Cab for Cutie’s early albums and E.P.s, some never before available on vinyl. All the records from the original 1997 cassette-only “demo” You Can Play These Songs With Chords (originally released via the band’s first label, Bellingham, WA-based Elsinor) through 2001’s The Stability E.P. have been re-mastered by Roger Seibel at SAE, bringing the audio quality of those pressings up to that of the band’s ground-breaking classic 2003 opus (and final studio release via Barsuk) Transatlanticism. Three releases in the package (You Can Play These Songs With Chords, The Stability E.P., and The Death Cab for Cutie Forbidden Love E.P.) are available for the first time on vinyl, only as a part of this box – the entire set is pressed on hefty, beautiful 180-gram vinyl. Each release is packaged individually in its own jacket with the album’s original artwork, and then collected snugly in an individually-numbered cloth-bound box and signed by the band.
