Bleeps synths, nice lyrics etc.
I have the album "The Young Machines", and it's very good indeed. Although as kind of a twist, the lyrics are mostly about him with his (I think?) best friend's lass - see the song "My Girlfriend's Boyfriend". It's interesting, anyway.
excellent, cheers(from south carolina sounds wonderful), anyone else got anything?
They have a girl singing, like Imogen Heap kind of style. A bit. The music isn't synthy, but it's made up of loads of interesting little noises. Toys, water, and all kinds of junk they just found around. It sounds like a craft project. The album is called "The Only Thing I Ever Wanted".
is a hell of a lot better than "The Only Thing I Ever Wanted" in my humble opinion.
I didn't even know it existed. I'll have to track that one down.
I guess they're not so similar, but I always listen to them when I'm in the same mood as when I listen to the Postal Service.
Good sentence structuring.
are a bit like an emo postal service...
otherwise psapp is reeally nice though not a great deal like postal service
like the postal service, but better.
'Insomnia' is pretty much the best thing ever.
casiotone for the painfully alone and
'digital ash in a digital urn' by bright eyes
maybe not as chirpy as postal service, but synths and nice lyrics.
are fucking incredible!!!
Electric President have a new album soon too...
they've broken up but they have some nice glitchy pop with vocals and some ass-slappin remixes as well. ASS well!
kinda describes my music: www.myspace.com/ilikewhereilive :P
also: dntel, people press play, the notwist, casiotone for the painfully alone, the helio sequence, stars...
her space holiday
the album leaf
ACTUALLY, this radio station is rilly good: http://somafm.com/digitalis/played
listen to that. and give them some money.
Not heard it myself but didn't alot of people say I Was A Cub Scout were quite Postal Service-esque?
i really fail here.
their new album is proper good as well.
in terms of pretty singing and disco beats but still sounding very, very indie.
...the British Postal Service...
Album is very good.
This is already my album of the year, it's incredible, the glitchy pop production of jimmy tamborello and the great lyrics and heartfelt singing of Ben Gibbard, all from one guy! In fact, those two are going to have to pull something extra special to beat this record, full track here:
But I second The Notwist, DNTEL, Plastic Operator and Mates of State. Obviously Hot Chip 'n all...
Try DNTEL's song 'Breakfast In Bed', which has Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst singing - It's the most Postal Service song in the world. Not surprising, really... Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13Q85Obp_5s
and take it easy makes me wish conor would do a full LP with tamborello.
dntel's 'this is the dream of evan and chan' is even MORE postal servicey considering it actually has ben gibbard doing the vocals on it? ;-) [/pedantics]
a Postal Service song without the Postal Service line-up, but yeah, anyone who likes them should hear all of DNTEL's stuff, I reckon. You can listen to the track here: http://www.last.fm/music/Dntel/_/(This+Is)+The+Dream+of+Evan+and+Chan
+1 for Oppenheimer
reminded me a lot of The Postal Service when i saw him.
and UPS are a good one.
'Neon Golden' = lost gem.
