Vampire Weekend and The Postal Service featured in Rolling Stone Magazine

Check out Vampire Weekend and The Postal Service featured in the May 9th issue of Rolling Stone Magazine. Both bands have high scoring album reviews and Vampire Weekend has a two-page spread in the 'Best of Rock' section. The title speaks for itself 'Because Vampire Weekend Just Keep Getting Better and Better' and we couldn't agree more! In the 'Best of Rock' article Ezra states "When I look at the future, I kind of feel like we can do anything."

This is Vampire Weekend's third album mastered by Chief Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar and her team at The Lodge. The new album 'Modern Vampires of the City' received an awesome review of 4.5 stars! Look for it out on XL Records May 14th. Pre-order the CD or Vinyl and/or on iTunes.

The Postal Service's reissue of GIVE UP: Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition is doing spectacular! Rolling Stone gave the album 4 stars and we are so happy to see Ben and Jimmy re-united and on tour once again. 

The Lodge is proud to have worked with both bands, whom, from day one we have always believed in. We congratulate them for creating music history and we hope you can get out their and support them too!


The Postal Service’s “GIVE UP” 10th Anniversary Edition mastered at The Lodge

It’s been 10 years since the release of The Postal Service hit album “GIVE UP”. Vocalist Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie), Producer Jimmy Tamborello (of Dntel and Headset) and Background Vocalist Jenny Lewis (of Rilo Kiley) never expected that the album would touch so many hearts and be as successful as it was earning certified platinum, making it the second biggest selling LP in Sup Pop Record's history.   

But here they are decade later headlining Coachella April 13th and 20th, Lollapalooza August 3rd while playing sold out shows across North America and Europe on their first tour since 2003. Don't miss them in NYC at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn June 14th and 15th tickets HERE.

Chief Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar and her team mastered the reissue of GIVE UP at The Lodge. It includes the remastered original 10-track album along with 15 bonus tracks, including the brand new songs “Turn Around” and “A Tattered Line of String,” a previously unreleased live recording, and every other official recording the band has ever released, as well as cover versions of Postal Service classics by The Shins and Iron & Wine.    

Ben explains the making behind GIVE UP in an NPR interview as “The record kind of took on a life of its own and just kind of found its way into areas that you know Death Cab or Dntel have not even gotten close to reaching. It was odd to see that just kind of fly off on its own and completely take on a world of its own.”
