Death Cab for Cutie‘s Ben Gibbard is set to cover Teenage Fanclub‘s 1991 album Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque in its entirety. It will be released on limited edition vinyl (with a download card) as part of Turntable Kitchen’s Sounds Delicious vinyl subscription series. The series will also feature Local Natives, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Kristin Kontrol, Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, Yumi Zouma, and more, all covering favorite albums.

Gibbard had this to say in a press release: “Bandwagonesque is my favorite record by my favorite band of all time. It came along at a pivotal time in my musical life and I’ve loved it for over 25 years. It’s been such a blast taking these songs apart to see how they work and then putting them back together again.”

Pre-orders for the series are $25 a month (plus shipping) and are available here.

Assignment Help
December 17th 2016

I love Ben Gibbard and I am excited to hear his music again, I am addicted to hearing music when doing my homework and I got this idea when I went for the Assignment Assistance and the person who was expert in preparing it was hearing the music. I tried playing it during my homework hours and I felt that it is the perfect thing, which helps me in getting it done while enjoying. Can anyone tell me the name of other releases of Ben?
