The Electronic Anthology Project was formed by Built to Spill bassist Brett Nelson in 2009. Having always loved 80’s New Wave music Nelson wondered what a guitar driven band like Built To Spill would sound like as an 80’s synth-pop band. So Nelson entered his home studio and emerged with seven Built To Spill tracks recorded using only synthesizers and a drum machine. Fellow BTS bandmate Doug Martsch re-sang all new vocals and helped Nelson mix the final product. The Electronic Anthology Project debuted July 2010 as a self released C.D.
In late 2012, Nelson recorded five demos of his favorite Death Cab for Cutie songs as 80’s synth-pop and sent them to lead singer, Ben Gibbard, who agreed to re-sing two of the songs for The Electronic Anthology Project of Death Cab for Cutie. Nelson and Gibbard re-imagine 2005’s Soul Meets Body (Plans) and 1998’s Champagne From A Paper Cup (Something About Airplanes) to be released July 2, 2013 as various runs (500 each) of colored 7″ vinyl and a digital bundle for download.-Electronic Anthology Project
