Ben Gibbard is the latest notable name to wade into the perplexing controversy surrounding the United States Postal Service in regards to the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election. The Death Cab For Cutie singer/guitarist hosted another virtual performance session on Tuesday, where he played solo acoustic renditions of Death Cab’s “Northern Lights” along with “Such Great Heights”, with the latter being a popular single released back in 2003 when Gibbard was part of indie-pop group The Postal Service.

Gibbard, who has been hosting virtual performances from his home studio since the shutdown of live events back in March, introduced his performance of the 2000s-era indie hit in stating,

I think more than any election in my lifetime, this one is of paramount importance, and one of the many institutions outside of democracy that is very core that is under fire is that of the United States Postal Service. For those who are not aware, I was in a band called the Postal Service. We put out a record in 2003 and we made this music by sending CDs back and forth to each other … I think in the midst of this global pandemic, nothing is more important than to being able to vote safely and securely and vote by mail has shown to be that over and over and over again.

Watch Tuesday’s acoustic performances of “Northern Lights” followed by “Such Great Heights” below. Fans will likely find Gibbard’s acoustic rendition of “Such Great Heights” to sound pretty similar to Iron & Wine‘s chilled-out folk cover of the tune.
