Anyone know any bands who sound similar, but better?
I sort of like them but they have got boring
but Dntel is the guy who did the beats for the Postal Service. His album 'Life is full of possibilities' is really rather sensational and also contains a song with Ben Gibbard singing on it that is better than anything on Give Up.
I think its the beats from Postal Service that makes me actually like them. Cheers
did the beats on some of digital ash by bright eyes and produced make the cowboy robots cry by beachwood sparks which is amazing (no beats though) I think he was in a band with their singer called strictly ballroom but ive never heard them
electric president (bit patchy but a couple of good songs, especially 'label my mind blown')
david e sugar
figurine (jimmy tamborello's other 'band')
erm, there's a few more but my mind's blank right now...
au revoir simone are great :)
I wonder if they ever do gigs...
not just do sxsw or am i confusing them with someone else..?
In my hosue.
apart from a one-off in 2004, they haven't played since may 2003 (at least according to www.dcfc-tour.net )
they're not very good live.
what a shame...
they stand stock still and stare at their instruments apparently.
they're pretty, but that only gets you so far.
really good album though.
DNTEL definetly, and possibly some stuff by izmar.
Are a fairly obvious one.
neon golden by the notwist is the best suggestion yet.
you could try her space holiday too. not the last album though. 'manic expressive' is the most inventive of his albums imo.
Um Dntel and the new Casiotone for the Painfully Alone is slightly Postal Service in places
