Dntel / Secret Mommy

For the unseasoned readers, Dntel is Jimmy Tamborello, otherwise known as 1/2 of the Postal Service. It's been six years since his last full album Life is Full of Possibilities, and is finally set to drop a new one in April on Subpop Records. The guest appearances are staggering, most notably Conor Oberst, Ed Droste (of Grizzly Bear!), and Jenny Lewis and if the lead track is any indication, holy guacamole, this record is going to be a stunner. It definitely has Jimmy's glitchy creative sampling and programming, but a lot more live instruments and really sounds like a fantastic band I would want to hear.

This other track is just amazingly interesting to me, and brings me great joy. It sounds like something I'd expect on the Dntel record, sans vocals. It's the free-form jazz of the future, a band made up of robots and bees and severed hands snapping the beat. This guy was a part of The Red Light Sting, a synth-punk band I booked about 3.5 years ago, so it's pretty exciting to see how far he's come. Secret Mommy might not be a secret for much longer with efforts like this.
