The Postal Service
It took ten years for Ben Gibbard (Death Cab For Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello to bring their acclaimed side project to the fest circuit and, judging from the crowd's response, late is most definitely better than never. With a set that largely delivered, thanks in part to help from Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and Mynabirds' Laura Burhenn. New tracks, including "Turn Around," blended in nicely with "Give Up" faves like "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight," "Sleeping In" and the group's biggest hit, "Such Great Heights."
