You'd think Benjamin Gibbard would have enough on his plate fronting Death Cab for Cutie, but beyond his additional side projects, he's also had a solo career simmering away for awhile. This year, he released his first full-length album purely under his own name, and it's called Former Lives. Check out a couple of the songs performed live during my conversation with Benjamin—which included some baseball talk too.
