Mark Kozelek Joins Ben Gibbard Onstage For Postal Service’s ‘Such Great Heights’
The Ohio singer-songwriter will also re-release Red House Painters' first four LPs
Mark Kozelek to the rescue: The notoriously curmudgeonly Sun Kil Moon musician recently lent his support to Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard at a concert when the Kintsugi singer had broken his hand. Jumping in on guitar, Kozelek backed up Gibbard on the Postal Service track “Such Great Heights” at the Swedish American Music Hall in San Francisco as part of the city’s annual Noise Pop Festival. (Remember: These guys go way back, based on their sprawling email exchanges.)
Watch Gibbard and Kozelek team up for “Such Great Heights” below, see Gibbard perform a new Death Cab track called “No Room in Frame,” and keep your eyes peeled for Kozelek’s upcoming reissue of Red House Painters’ first four albums in box-set form, which hits shelves on April 21.
