Jimmy Tamborello is probably best known for his work with Ben Gibbard in the Postal Service, where his pioneering, glitchy electronica provided the beautifully textured backdrop to that band's songs. The basis for that sound was one he'd been developing in other projects, including his main musical priority these days, Dntel. From a very young age, Tamborello has explored the possibilities of electronic sounds, and his experiments first came to fruition in Dntel's debut full-length, 2001's Life Is Full of Possibilities. Since then, he's done production work and remixes for the likes of Bright Eyes, Grizzly Bear and Beachwood Sparks. Dntel tours are few and far between, so here's your chance to witness and admire Tamborello's handiwork up close and personal.
