It's quiet difficult to explain what The Postal Service was or defenetelly is. It's started like a joke, a side project. DNTEL also known as Jimmy Tamborello or James Figurine released an experimental electronic masterpiece, under Plugresearch called "Life Of Full Of Possibilities" in which Ben of Dead Cab For Cutie gave a featuring for "This Is The Dream Of Evan And Chan". They started to talk and "Give Up" came out in a few. They choose The Postal Service as a name cause they were in different towns and they worked on the album sending DATs each other. I assure you I will remember forever the day in which the promo of "Give Up" arrived in my personal hands. Hi-Lo Tunez was three years old and this record was one of the reasons why I was sure about what Hi-Lo tunez was doing. Our crew was working on The Hi-Lo Tunez Plan: 3rd Step and everybody said The Postal Service have to be on The Plan. Underground music was at the point to destroy all barries between music genres. I don't care which one you prefer, the music is an art and punk showed everybody the right approach to make music, so any way to create music could be a good thing for arts development. At that time the independent scene had a lot of different point views about how to make this possible and indie labels were really focused on their own style. Sub Pop broke this point of view. The label known to be the symbol of late punk revolution, with grunge bands like Nirvana, Mudhoney and you know, was going to release and indietronic pop danceable side-project, between Jimmy Tamborello and Ben Gibbard?! Yes they were doing that! The end? "Give Up" is one of the best selling album of the history of Sub Pop. That's it! This is the 10th anniversary of the album, and Sub Pop is going to release a deluxe remastered edition of the album. Here is The Postal Service brand new inedit track.
They are UUVVWWZ, an avant-blues quartet from Lincoln Nebraska, comprised of Teal Gardner, Jim Schroeder, Dustin Wilbourn, and David Ozinga. They have been playing as UU for five years and have put out one album previously, a self-titled record that was screech-cronky, clubbier, and babier than our current work. "The Trusted Language" is the brand new album under Saddle Creek and this is our video of the week "Open Sign".
Darkstar new release "News From Nowhere" is ready. Three years of hiatus to have a second album that is going to be their debut on legendary Warp records. This is the brand new video "Amplified Ease" directed by Drew Cox.
