You know his wired-in mixes from his time as a member of electro-pop people The Postal Service, but that's just a tiny splatter on Jimmy Tamborello's wide-open palette. From the misty depths of his Silver Lake home studio, the curious sound-freak/conceptualizer is, even as we speak, making influential contributions to underground music's furthest-spinning electronic/hip-hop/glitch spheres, always with one purpose in mind: to keep you (and himself) on your toes. Tonight's an album-release event for Human Voice (Leaving Records), his first solo record in two years under his Dntel alias; it's a densely textured, finely crafted batch featuring in place of human vocals the heartrending (believe it) sound of music machines in peoplelike interplay with each other. Catch too the deep-down electronic sound-stories of Brainfeeder's Teebs; also Leaving Records' beatmakers/producers Brogan Bentley and Benedek.
