Vitamin String Quartet and Other New Releases

There sure are a lot of greatest-hits albums out today, including ones from Backstreet Boys and Mariah Carey, but what is most exciting in this week's new releases is Vitamin String Quartet's Death Cab for Cutie tribute album, Ghost.

On the record, listeners will find a selection of DCFC's songs from over the years, including "Soul Meets Body" and "Company Calls." VSQ has covered a wide range of artists in the past, including Animal Collective, Celine Dion, and The Rolling Stones, and this should make for a good match considering the indie emo band's pretty melodies.
