Compare and Contrast: Owl City and the Postal Service

I heard this song somewhere, and then a friend favourited it on YouTube.

I’d always thought it was by the Postal Service, until I shazammed it (is that a verb?). Turns out I was wrong. And thousands of Internet people have already commented on the similarities.

And if you think the Postal Service sound a lot like Death Cab for Cutie that’s because Ben Gibbard is in both bands.


So there you go, I’m educating you all so that you don’t have to continue listening to the inferior knock off.
