Death Cab for Cutie – “Transatlanticism”

I’m gearing up to take the mvyradio Hot Seat on Monday night. I’ve decided to give in to my winter blues. I tend to get a little down during the wintertime and especially this month, I’ve been in a bit of a funk. I know I’m not alone, and I’ve decided to embrace this feeling and turn it into an hour of comforting music.

“Sometimes when one is sad, it consoles one to hear a sad song”
-Thomas Hardy

I’ll be playing songs that epitomize feelings like loneliness, sadness, and bleakness… songs that give off the feeling of the cold, gray, damp New England winter. Right away I know that the Death Cab for Cutie album, Transatlanticism will be included in this Hot Seat. In my opinion, this is the ultimate winter album. I may not play the over 7 minute title track, but here it is to give you the full effect.

Death Cab For Cutie – “Passenger Seat”

It’s pretty neat the way music can fit so well with certain weather… certain seasons. With the new season, I’ve been going back to bands with that sad but gorgeous sound that works perfectly for fall (and winter too) – Radiohead, The Weepies, Band Of Horses, and the like. I was listening to a station for The Weepies on Pandora when this song came up. Death Cab, and specifically the album Transatlanticism are SO perfect for the fall and winter. And when this song came on, I was looking out of a ferry window onto the gray sea and the cloudy sky.
