As Death Cab for Cutie, Gibbard released a cassette, titled You Can Play These Songs with Chords. The release was surprisingly successful, and Gibbard decided to expand the band into a complete project. He recruited Christopher Walla, who also recorded You Can Play These Songs with Chords, as an electric guitarist, Nicholas Harmer on bass and Nathan Good to play drums (Good later left to be replaced by Michael Schorr).
Gibbard formed a side project The Postal Service, with Dntel's Jimmy Tamborello. They released the album Give Up in 2003, with the help of Chris Walla and guest vocals from Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and Jen Wood.
The first single off Death Cab for Cutie's album Plans was titled "Soul Meets Body". The full album was released in August of 2005. Plans was well-acclaimed by critics and fans alike, and received a nomination for the Grammy Award for "Best Alternative Album of 2005". In early 2006, Death Cab for Cutie announced the upcoming release of "DIRECTIONS," eleven short films inspired by songs from the Plans album, each directed by a different person.
