SoTD: The Postal Service “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight”

A little while ago, I wrote a piece about how I had initially been turned off of The Decemberists by Colin Meloy’s wonky voice.  Today’s song features another high and wobbly male voice that repulsed me at first.  My first exposure to Benjamin Gibbard was Death Cab for Cutie’s When Soul Meets Body.  I was so irked by his vocals that I angrily jabbed at my car stereo with enough force to injure my index finger.  But, as it went with Mr. Meloy, the lyrical content eventually won me over.
