new DCfC leaked!

Stereogum has a link to the not-yet-released Death Cab for Cutie album here.

I'm about 3 songs in... I like it. Their major-label money was spent wisely.

EDIT: I'm nearly finished. It's OK... it's certainly no "We Have The Facts...", but it's certainly not deserving of some of the bile it's been getting in the hipster blogosphere. I'll probably end up iTunes-ing it, but it's not a must-have-as-soon-as-its-released sort of album. "Marching Bands of Manhattan" and the second half of "Different Names For The Same Thing" are my 2 faves right now, although I haven't as yet heard the last 2.

EDIT: I like the 2nd half of "What Sarah Said", too - that's the DCfC that I know and love, those repeating phrases with interweaving guitars and vocals...

EDIT EDIT EDIT: I just found my LJ entry where I first discovered them, courtesy of wienerschnitzel's previous LJ persona. Still haven't listened to Red Stars Theory, either.
