Roommate’s debut album, Songs the Animals Taught Us, is in stores today!!! For those who haven’t checked it out, you can hear sound samples on iTunes, as well as on our podcasts. We love this album, but don’t take our word for it, see what the press has to say:
In case you missed it in our newsletter or in the news items around the web, Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel, The Postal Service) is releasing a new album!!! This time, he is working under the name James Figurine, creating more brilliant ear candy for you to digest.
Jimmy describes the creative process behind the album as such:
“In November of 2001 my band Figurine went on a short tour of Germany with Lali Puna. Our label there, Monika, set us up with a driver to get from show to show. She only brought three or four tapes to listen to on the drives, mostly techno. I’d never paid much attention to dancefloor-oriented electronic music, but listening to the same tapes over and over again (especially Kompakt’s pop-leaning Total 3 and some 7”s on Parfum) while driving through Germany made a giant impression on me. So this record was supposed to be an extra melodic, minimal techno record with some sparse vocals, but my technopop tendencies got the best of me, the songs slowly filled up, and this is what I ended up with.”
This is definitely an album you won’t want to miss. The album, titled Mistake Mistake Mistake Mistake, drops July 11th. Until then, keep your eyes peeled for some sound samples;)
Roommate’s brilliant debut album, Songs the Animals Taught Us, drops TOMORROW! You can hear sound samples on iTunes of the album, as well as full-length tracks in our podcasts. Get yourself a copy, you won’t regret it!
