The Postal Service

The Postal Service

An on-again, off-again side project responsible for one of the best-selling records in Sub Pop history, the Postal Service consists of Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and electro-pop producer Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel). The duo met in early 2001, when Gibbard contributed vocals to a song on Dntel's Life Is Full of Possibilities. They decided to collaborate, but since Tamborello lived in Los Angeles and Gibbard in Seattle, unfinished tracks were sent over the mail (hence the band name), with Gibbard layering vocals over Tamborello's blipping synths.
