It's not difficult to see why Death Cab For Cutie have featured on The OC. Their doleful guitar licks, articulate storytelling and Ben Gibbard's bittersweet vocals seem tailor-made for the TV show's document of awkward adolesence and family strife in supposedly ideal settings. It seems reasonable to assume that the popularity of the programme has led to a reissue of the Washington group's back catalogue. Their second album from 2000 is a great example of their art; capturing their melancholic post-dream pop guitar at its peak and with Gibbard's vocals less saccharine than subsequent releases. 'For What Reason' exemplifies the edgy, almost lo-fi quality of their work at this time whilst 'Lowell MA' and 'Company Calls' consist of immaculately constructed and catchy guitar hooks. Even the slower-paced tracks work well, particularly 'No Joy In Mudville'. In summary, as a document to post-teen angst, 'We Have The Facts And We're Voting Yes' is hard to beat.
