Covers: Ben Gibbard (Death Cab) Does "Silver Lining"

Ben Gibbard, aka "The Death Cab Guy", recently covered Rilo Kiley's underrated single "Silver Lining" at the Hiro Ballroom, along with a few other songs. It sounds fantastic, and you can see the un-embeddable video at:

Meanwhile, here's an embeddable video of Ben doing the some thing 10-ish months ago. It's not quite as good, but I love the humming solo that he uses in this one:

And for the other music nerds out there-- he shifts the song from G to E-Flat, which works so much better for the song.
