No wonder they aren't making a new one, I mean what possible reason could there be.

The Platinum Service. This album is so nostalgic to me but if you put all that aside it's still a damn fine album.

This is probably solely because of Urban Outfitters vinyl sales. I'm not saying that in a negative way, I just bet those account for many sales in recent years..

weird how there was an article just the other day about the postal service. i don't see the problem in them throwing together a basic EP of the demos i'm sure they worked on. if they were like "set your expectations low" it would be cool just to have something

agreed, that sounds like a pretty realistic/cool idea.

The sales were from teenage girls thinking they were buying an owl city cd.
