[CACHET ON DELIVERY] Feels faintly implausible that the emotive touchstone to score the virtual generation's wonder years came together via snail-mail collaborations, but the Postal Service released sole album Give Up to a far different world a decade ago. When Deathcab driver Ben Gibbard first gave tremulous voice to an unusual directness of lyrical ennui above producer Jimmy "DNTL" Tamborello's tastefully synthesized musings—with backing vocals from Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis, also in appearance this evening—the oddly affecting loveliness crystallized through wedding the sounds of isolation hardly seemed a good bet to pack arenas. Though this commemorative tour deservedly takes advantage of the indie-electronica ubiquity Gibbard and Tamborello's landmark recordings so effectively packaged, there's little reason to believe our couriers of post-millennial alienation will soon revisit their appointed rounds.
