Dntel: Ashby

An empowering #PrivateJam, SBTRKT goes Higher, Metronomy's mind-bending music video and more in the songs we tweeted this week

Jimmy Tamborello—also known as Dntel—has remained relatively quiet since the runaway success of his side project The Postal Service with Death Cab’s Ben Gibbard in 2003. This week, the LA-based minimalist electronic artist released a new single from his upcoming full-length Human Voice out 23 September on Leaving Records. “Ashby” is a four-minute track that sounds and feels much larger. Tamborello builds a vast sonic landscape that takes on a life of its own, calling to mind Brian Eno’s structured ambience. Cerebral, layered synths and digitally altered vocals have never sounded so full of human emotion.
