As a misanthropic thirteen year old, I remember walking in on my best friend’s brother listening to "Brand New Colony" and thinking that I might die from love-related combustion. But it’s been ten years since and although I no longer spend my days rolling around on the floor listening to The Postal Service’s Give Up, duo Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello have reunited to reawaken the teenager in all of us. The indie pop icons, whose name became synonymous with lonely wandering around vacant suburbs and college campuses, have now—in support of their 10th-anniverasary Give Up reissue—announced a spring tour beginning in April. Taking their act everywhere from the Madonna Inn to Coachella, and back east to the Barclay Center, TPS will play with a band that includes Laura Burhenn and Jenny Lewis (who appeared with them on their only tour back in 2003). Rilo Kiley fans rejoice.
