Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie has a new solo album out: Former Lives. It's $5 right now. I wasn't sure I would buy it. I'm not a huge Death Cab fan, though I've enjoyed some of their stuff. But I've listened to this and so far really like it. It reminds me of the sort of Death Cab songs I like the most. For $5, you should check it out for sure.
