With a decade of perspective, the Postal Service didn’t change the songs much. Along with Mr. Gibbard, Mr. Tamborello and Ms. Lewis, the touring Postal Service now also includes Laura Burhenn from the Mynabirds on keyboards and vocal harmonies. They played the group’s repertory with the songs’ old proportions, and probably their original electronic parts, largely intact. The set also included “This Is the Dream of Evan and Chan,” the 2001 song from Dntel that featured Mr. Gibbard and led to the formation of the Postal Service; its staticky intro was replaced with something more melodic and arena-friendly. A backdrop of geometric lights could look like level meters in a recording studio or dance-club strobes. – [NY Times]

The Postal Service’s Give Up 10th Anniversary tour finally hit NYC over the weekend for two shows at Barclays Center. At Friday’s (6/14) sold-out show, they played the entirety of their only album, Give Up, in addition to a Dntel song and a cover of Beat Happening’s “Our Secret.” Pictures from the show (though unfortunately none of openers Mates of State) and the setlist are in this post. They played again on Saturday (6/15) with Ra Ra Riot opening.
