I'm a huge death cab fan! Transatlanticism is their best album imo followed by Plans. I dont think I could pick a favorite song by them to be honest I'd be torn between 4 or 5 at least

I love them, as well. Ben Gibbard's recent actions, however, have lead me to appreciate other musicians much more than himself. (Not gonna go into it, but he's kinda whored himself and his music out for publicity as of late. (EG, "Meet Me On the Equinox" and his obvious publicity marriage of Zoey Deschanel.)
If you really want music that is thoughtful like Death Cab's and as raw and true to the soul as can be, listen to Glen Hansard's songs. I've never seen a man put more emotion toward his music than he does in every one of his songs.
Another good band that I like for similar reasons to Death Cab is The Decemberists, but some of his music kinda bothers me. The album, "Crane Wife," is amazing, but I don't really like his other work as much. One or two of the songs on his other album are pretty good, but I'm not that into the band as a whole.
Also, see The Avett Brothers, Bon Iver, Iron and Wine (!!! REALLY GOOD BAND, THAT ONE), and Sun Kil Moon's Modest Mouse covers.
