How was your experience on the new Ear Candy Music?Let us know!
Jimmy Tamborello has been quiet of late, the last DNTEL album proper was back in 2007 and the last Postal Service album was earlier than that, so what's he been up to since then? Well by the sounds of this EP, he's been hard at work in the studio dialling back his sound to something far less pop and a little harder to place. That is, after all, where DNTEL started off - the vocal pop he perfected on `Give Up' wasn't exactly prevalent in his early LPs. `After Parties I' kicks off with the clipped near-house of the title track, and while there is a driving beat and subtle bassline, the track is hardly aimed at the dancefloor. Rather Tamborello has his sights set on something more stripped down, and importantly more melodic. The thread that links these tracks together is Tamborello's keen sense of melody, and the more you listen to the tracks, the more you can hear the effortless sonic signatures we had almost forgotten. The distant strings in `After Parties', the haunted synthezier arpeggios of `Lindsey', and the restrained nu-gaze bliss of `Soft Alarm' all hark back to a simpler, warmer time. It's good to have you back Jimmy, don't wait so long next time, okay?
