BEN­JAMIN GIBBARD

Band­wag­onesque (At­lantic)

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - FRONT PAGE -

The Death Cab for Cutie main-man has taken on Teenage Fan­club’s 1991 mas­ter­piece and put his own stamp on the songs. And what tunes they are: Gibbard coaxes beauty from sprawl­ing opener ‘The Con­cept’ and sounds like he’s au­di­tion­ing for mem­ber­ship of the Scot­tish band with his de­li­ciously sprightly take on the won­der­fully catchy ‘Star Sign’.
