The Postal Service – Give Up

Jimmy Tamborello’s collaborations with other artists on Life Is Full Of Possibilities-his debut album recorded as Dntel?never lived up to the promise of his solo tracks, which makes it doubly rewarding that his new project in conjunction with Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard is such a resounding success. Gibbard’s refined, feather-light vocals waft delicately over Tamborello’s indie electronica (with nods toward Prefab Sprout and The Human League), creating a wide-eyed world out of bittersweet love songs and autobiographical daydreams.
