a note about this track

In 2003 The Postal Service released their only LP Give Up. The duo consisting of Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello captured the hearts of fans with a unique blend of poetic synth-pop. Ever since then fans have wondered if we would ever see more of The Postal Service. Early Monday morning The Postal Service updated their website with a one simple graphic reading “The Postal Service 2013″ all but confirming the rumors of their reunion. Billboard is reporting the reunion is to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of Give Up to which Sub Pop is prepping a deluxe reissue of the album. They are also confirmed to play Coachella and will likely tour additional dates and cities reports Consequence of Sound.

We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors Of P 2013 via Jagjaguwar
a note about this track

Foxygen is the Los Angeles-bred songwriting duo of Sam France (vocals, Olympia, Wash., 22 years old) and Jonathan Rado (guitar/keyboards, NYC, 22). They are the raw, de-Wes Andersonization of The Rolling Stones, Kinks, Velvets, Bowie, etc. that a whole mess of young people desperately need. They create a sometimes-impressionistic, sometimes-hyper-real portrait of sounds from specific places and times. Yet, it never comes across as anything but absolutely modern music. They bring the manic, freewheeling qualities of an artist like Ariel Pink to those aforementioned influences to make for one of the most refreshing listens of the year. They are the real deal and total savants.
