Back in 2003, Ben Gibbard teamed up with Jimmy Tamborello for a little project called the Postal Service. Remember them? Just kidding, of course you do!

A varied assortment of selections from different genres ranging from indie rock to hip hop, FIFA 19 sees sonic appearances from artists like Bob Moses, Gorillaz, Childish Gambino, Death Cab For Cutie, and more. Electronic music notably figures on the soundtrack with increased prominence through FIFA 19’s inclusion of LSD‘s debut single, “Genius,” Peggy Gou‘s Nina Tune production, “It Makes You Forget (Itgehane),” Gorillaz’ “Sorcererz,” and Moses’ “Heaven Only Knows.”
The EA Sports game will make its official debut on September 28, but fans can preview the soundtrack now via Spotify.

I imagine Ben Gibbard circa 1998 situated under a tree reading Kerouac. A sensitive 20-something in sandals and jeans, probably the brainiest of his friend group. Grounded, but reactive. That August, 20 years ago tomorrow, he would release Something About Airplanes with his newly-assembled band Death Cab For Cutie. When I spoke to … More »
