USA, 2003, indietronica / indie pop

The Postal ServiceGive Up: An idealism that struggles to survive in the harsh realities of this world–realities devoid of love and responsibility. Both the softly-delivered lyrics and the indietronic music contain this bittersweet idealism. Whenever I listen to this album, I just smile faintly, my heart simultaneously lifted and sunk by the hopeless fight. Faded Paper Figures released their first album five years after this was released. This has to be the inspiration for that band’s sound. I mean, the band’s even got two dudes and a chick.
