Overview

"The District Sleeps Alone" is one of the moodiest highlights of the Postal Service's moody 2003 album Give Up. The track features deeply sad vocals by Ben Gibbard and some inspired musical backing full of tripping strings, sweeping female harmony vocals, and skittery beats provided by Jimmy Tamborello. The two remixes of the track on the single don't improve upon the original much but are interesting: DJ Downfall's "Persistent Beat" mix adds a persistent beat, some fluttery sequencers, and a jolt of energy while John Tejada's mix adds a housey beat and some slide guitar. Both mixes keep the vocals intact. The fourth song is an imaginative and subdued take on the Flaming Lips' "Suddenly Everything Has Changed."
