You can spend all the time and money in the world trying to craft the perfect pop-music scenario, but sometimes the stars have to align all by themselves. Even though early on the members of The Postal Service jokingly referred to 'Such Great Heights' as the hit on their debut album, Give Up, there's no way anyone could have predicted the eventual impact made by a mail-order album designed in a pair of West Coast bedrooms. It's been 10 years since the little project that could from Seattelite Ben Gibbard (also known as Death Cab For Cutie's frontman) and Angeleno Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel, Figurine) emerged from seemingly nowhere and began to burrow its way into the ears of anyone who came into contact with the band's infectious electro-pop. To celebrate, Sub Pop is reissuing The Postal Service's one and only album, including in the multidisc set B-sides, rarities, and two brand new songs, 'A Tattered Line Of String' and 'Turn Around.' Equally noteworthy is the announcement that the band is back together, at least in 2013: The Postal Service will hit the road for a long-overdue victory lap, one that will give most fans their first (and last-seriously, don't ask) chance to see the group in person. Jenny Lewis of Rilo Kiley fame will accompany Gibbard and Tamborello.
