Another interesting project like this is “The Postal Service” with a US
– Pacific Northwest / Southern California long distance collaboration.
“In December 2001, Gibbard started receiving CD-Rs from Tamborello
filled with beatsy electronic music, which he manipulated in his
computer before writing melodies and lyrics and recording vocals. He
also added some guitar, drums and keyboards – much of which was
recorded by Death Cab guitarist Chris Walla at his Hall of Justice
studio – and then sent the demo back to L.A. Gibbard had to run his
changes past Tamborello, but he more or less had the freedom to alter
the songs to his liking.”
Lindsey keeps turning me onto such very interesting music.
