    Nearly a decade after its release, The Postal Service's 2003 album Give Up has been certified platinum! It may be 10 years later, as the album was released on February 9, 2003, but still! It's a big deal, since platinum albums are a rarity in today's music business climate and it is only the second platinum album -ever- in the SubPop catalog.

    The Postal Service is, of course, Ben Gibbard from Death Cab for Cutie and Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel fame. The song 'Such Great Heights' was and still is a favorite of 'Alternative' radio.

    Congrats to the band and the label.

    Have you ever listened to Give Up by The Postal Service?
