The Postal Service was one of those shortlived collaborations that stands out distinctly in many people's minds, a cherished memory that lives on through our digital libraries. Could it be that Death Cab for Cutie frontman Benjamin Gibbard and DNTEL are reuniting, perhaps for a performance at this year's Coachella? A post on Brooklyn Vegan suggests through title alone that a reunion is "in the works", along with a tag for Coachella. As no other information was given, all we can say is that this is pure speculation.
Gibbard has been rather dismissive of any chance of reuniting the shortlived collaboration, stating as recently as October that "[t]here are no plans to make a second record … I can’t say that enough.” He states further, "I really enjoyed doing that record with Jimmy", but "making music in computers involves a lot of mouse time … I don’t have an aesthetic for that. Keeping up on new software technology, I'm not particularly interested in that... I’m much more interested in playing music than creating it" (via Spinner).
