Dntel is the operational alias for Los Angeles resident Jimmy Tamborello. Jimmy also sometimes records and releases music under the name James Figurine. He is also the host of the Dublab show Dying Songs. And, he is also, it’s true, one half of The Postal Service (whose 2003 album Give Up is Sub Pop’s second best-selling album of all time).
"Dumb Luck is another lovely, impressionistic collage of dream pop, indie rock, and electronic sounds, graced with vocals by some of indie's most distinctive singers." --Allmusic.com
The One AM Radio:
The One AM Radio recently released their second album for Dangerbird Records. They've played shows with Juana Molina, El Perro Del Mar, Damien Jurado, Ted Leo and Houses.
The One AM Radio is a trio based in Los Angeles, where the sun hasn’t completely thawed their New England roots. They make music about the feeling you get while driving home, fast, late at night, through half-empty streets.
The project began in New England, where Hrishikesh Hirway was studying design and photography at Yale. With a borrowed guitar, a 4-track, and a drum machine, he made cassettes for his friends and his sister to fall asleep to—instrumental lullabies mixed with staticky murmurs of talk radio.
"The AM Radio's 2011 effort Heaven Is Attached by a Slender Thread features more of lead singer/songwriter Hrishikesh Hirway's melodic and lushly produced pop. This is music crafted for sunny late-afternoon listening and melancholy days spent alone." --AllMusic.com
Geotic is the side project of Will Wiesenfeld of BATHS. Rather than create more of his electronic pop like Baths, the Los Angeles musician's new project is a guitar-based, ambient-styled effort.
