Performer Notes
  • Lyricist: Benjamin Gibbard.
  • Audio Mixer: Rich Costey.
  • Recording information: Eldorado Recording Studios, Burbank, CA.
  • Death Cab for Cutie's eighth full-length album, 2015's Kintsugi, finds the group sliding further into the studio smoothness that marked 2011's Codes and Keys. Produced by Rich Costey -- best-known for his work with Kimbra, Mew, Muse, Interpol, and Chvrches -- Kintsugi is also the last album Death Cab recorded with co-founding member Chris Walla, who announced he was leaving the band during the recording process. Sentiment has always been lead singer/songwriter Ben Gibbard's calling card, but as he starts to stare down the corridor to 40, he seems comfortable with leaving that open heart unadorned -- or, better still, gussied up in a coat of studio shellac. Although there are fragile solo numbers dotted throughout the album, most of Kintsugi shimmers upon a gloss constructed out of new wave remnants and faded memories of yacht rock. Conceivably, Gibbard's intent hews toward the latter -- such clean disco-rock diversions as "Good Help (Is So Hard to Find)" and the galloping collegiate rock echoes of "El Dorado" show a yen for art -- but his open heart nudges Kintsugi toward new millennial soft rock. This is a feature, not a bug. Gibbard has a gentle touch so having cushy, sugary melodies mirrored by a production equally as supple feels like a marriage of intent and sound. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "Death Cab have coped with their losses collectively, and emerged with a heart-wrenchingly honest record."

Spin - "With the bulk of these tracks, Walla's curious, exploratory strums offer enough whiffs of radio-ready excitement to keep the ship afloat..."

Paste (magazine) - "Death Cab's attempt at repatching was thoughtful, deliberate and, at times, really beautiful."

Clash (magazine) - "KINTSUGI hits hard due to its lightness, its bitter heart shrouded in soft arpeggios and catchy riffs."
