After releasing only one album in 2003, Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, a.k.a The Postal Service, still have a large following of devoted fans listening to their music. It turns out that mixing electronica with Gibbard’s vocals isn’t a bad idea at all, which is shown through their dedicated fan base and “Give Up”’s overall positive reception. Tamborello’s electronic beats are well constructed and complex enough to differentiate the band from other artists of a similar nature, and they really add to the band’s sound.
The band began as a collaboration between the two artists when Gibbard did vocals for a song called “(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan” by Dntel (Dntel is the name Tamborello makes music under as a solo artist). The song was that well received that they decided to continue collaborating on material together. Tamborello would create the instrumental beats and music and then send the songs to Gibbard…

I thought that repeating the same artist was kinda lame, so I tried to find a new artist for each song. No one likes repeats. If you don't know what I'm talking about, take a look at Mix Tapes 101 again and come back.
These are not based on any sort of grading system or anything. They are just my favorite songs as of right now. I just believe they are great songs that everyone should listen to.
If you don't agree, well, I guess I don't really care. Here ya go.
1. The Stills, Gender Bombs
2. The Shins, We Will Become Silhouettes
3. Talking Heads, Making Flippy Floppy
4. The Whitest Boy Alive, Figures
5. John Lennon, Instant Karma!
6. 3, One Way Town
7. Bright Eyes, Road to Joy
8. Circa Survive, The Glorious Nosebleed
9. Destroyer, Painter in Your Pocket
10. The Flaming Lips, Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell
11. Death Cab for Cutie, The New Year
12. Grandaddy, El Camino's In The West
13. Jimmy Eat World, Ten
14. Jonezetta, Popularity
15. Hellogoodbye, All Of Your Love

Jan 15 2007, 22h14 por boingocureLast night I was driving home and Mother Nature's Son came on and I forgot how beautiful this song is. So I decided to make a list of some of the most beautiful songs that I love. I have a tendency to ignore the lyrics at first and listen to the music which explains for some of the "odd" songs on this list. But that doesn't change the fact that they are still beautiful.
Mother Nature's Son
If You're Feeling Sinister
A Lack of Color
I'm Still Your Fag
Jack the Ripper
Back to the old house
There Is a Light That Never Goes Out
How to Disappear Completely
The Dress Looks Nice on You
Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others
I Found a Reason
(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan
Hide And Seek
Angel, Angel, Down We Go Together
The District Sleeps Alone Tonight
The Light 3000
Mai 24 2006, 14h22 por grayxThought I would write a decent journal entry for a change, considering it's been awhile since I have. The topic of this journal, as you have probably guessed, is on some of the new music I have heard over the last week or so, and what I thought of it all. Firstly I would like to thank who ever it was who in their journal brought eMusic to my attention, and their 14 day free trial, which gives you 50 free downloads and no obligation to continue with a subscription after the 14 days are up. Indeed seeing this I was excited at the prospect of downloading some new tunes to listen to and see if I could find any bands that I have failed to check out before.
eMusic had an exclusive live set by Art Brut, recorded in Chicago last Novemeber which is fantastic. Eddie Argos's between-song banter is amusing, and they even play a couple of new tracks. Art Brut are humourous and play good time rock and roll. What is there not to love?

I tried to keep it either similar to her preferred genre while digging either more obscure or more heavy. Add some of my favorites and you get one of my best mixes highlighting several styles of music out there today.
Fev 9 2006, 13h22 por RauraI've listened to Death Cab and Dntel these days. I like Dntel more ;p So I'd like to talk about him in this post.
Early Works for Me if it Works for You and Something Always Goes Wrong sounds quite cold and mysterious to me. There's no doubt the former two are great, but the warmth in Life Is Full of Possibilities is more attractive and colourful, especailly those tracks which had voice part in them. :)
I love (This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan, Anywhere Anyone, Umbrella, and etc.
Fev 4 2006, 8h47 por StephenColbert60. Slip Away
On "Slip Away" David Bowie takes us on a trip through our childhood memories of watching Uncle Floyd and going to Coney Island to watch the Yankees play. Bowie also laments the dark days of the Bowie legacy, basically everything after Scary Monsters and before Heathen. He thinks he had become a joke. All the critics had been right. Bowie, the musical chameleon, had finally failed and had become irrelevant. Heathen is like one big fuck you to these people. Bowie was, is, and will continue to be one of the greatest songwriters in rock n' roll.
59. (This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan
Before there was the Postal Service, there was this song. It showed the possiblities of a unification of IDM production and affectionate immasculated vocals.
58. The Trial Of The Century
If I was in the French Kicks I would be the guy who plays like the 2 piano keys in this song. I would play the fuck out of those two piano keys though.
