If you five really want to avoid D-Day, you’ll have to hide much better than that.
Come to think of it, regarding their most recent album, even more accessible for the Indie Electronica lover than “Nothing Is Something Worth Doing” is “No Turn Un-Stoned”.
The Lemon of Pink by The Books
Up In Flames by Caribou/Manitoba
DUDE! i was just about to post about Shpongle. Indie Electronica lovers really ought to learn about Shpongle. Let me offer my opinion on the best access points:
Album: Nothing Lasts… But Nothing is Lost
Songs: Nothing Lasts, Divine Moments of Truth, Dorset Perception, Nothing Is Something Worth Doing,
While I agree that listening to Owl City ought to make everyone appreciate Jimmy Tamborello more, Ben Gibbard did a lot more than sing for the Postal Service. Ben has talked about the song-making process here and there, including for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic; he has explained that Jimmy would send him projects with ideas–beats, melodies, etc–and then he would take them and rearrange/edit them to what he thought would “make a good pop song” (as he put it). And that’s on top of his lyrics, which play a huge role in hooks, not to mention meaning/content.
