The Postal Service

As crazy as it sounds, the two creative minds behind the Postal Service (Jimmy Tamborello and Ben Gibbard) never met before working together. It seems Tamborello, a Death Cab For Cutie fan, asked its lead singer to come to L.A. and record vocals for his Dntel project, and Gibbard did! Of course, it probably helped that Tamborello's roomie is Pedro Benito from the Jealous Sound; either way, this initial meeting of musical minds was the genesis of the Postal Service. The two continued to collaborate for the better part of ten months, each mailing the other songs to add parts to, until all ten tracks for their debut album were completed. Inspired by their creative process, the duo dubbed themselves the Postal Service. Sub Pop released the 1980s-influenced fruits of their labor under the title Give Up in early 2003.

    Year: 2016

    Runtime: 1 hr 26 min

    Everything Will Change is a feature-length documentary concert film of The Postal Service s performance at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA during their 2013 reunion tour. A collaboration between Benjamin Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (from Dntel), with Rilo Kiley s Jenny Lewis, The Postal Service released Give Up, their one and only album, in 2003. That record went on to sell over a million copies and most of the band s fans never had the chance to see them perform live. In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Give Up, the band reunited to tour the world. With never-before-seen live recordings, intimate interviews and backstage footage of the band, Everything Will Change captures one of the nights when everything did change.
