Ben Gibbard Calls the Next Postal Service LP “The Chinese Democracy of Indie Rock”

As Death Cab For Cutie celebrate the release of their second major-label LP, Narrow Stairs, this week, frontman Ben Gibbard cautions fans of his other project, Postal Service, not to hold their breath for a new album from the glitchy electro-pop duo anytime soon. Though beatmaker Jimmy Tamborello recently sent him five new demos to work on, Gibbard says that between Narrow Stairs and Tamborello’s various projects — DNTEL, Figurine — the pair hasn’t had time to focus on making the follow-up to 2003’s Give Up. “The second Postal Service album is threatening to become the Chinese Democracy of indie rock,” Gibbard tells Rolling Stone. “It will come out eventually, or maybe it won’t.”
