In episode 14, the guys discuss indie rock giants, Death Cab For Cutie's Something About Airplanes. The album, which was released in 1998 as their first studio album, set the tone for a band which become synonymous with the latest iteration of the "quiet guy" archetype that emerged in the early 2000s. At the same time, and perhaps as would be expected, the album can be quite apart from the band's later albums-- particularly Transatlanticism and Plans-- that would propel Death Cab to mega-stardom.
