For their first music video in years, the Postal Service get all Inception-y on us... at a laundromat.

You know how it is: you’re doing laundry one day and suddenly your clothes are the the thing that’s firmly planted and it’s you that’s spinning! Wait, maybe that was just that acid trip I had. Nope, wrong again: it was that new music video from the Postal Service (and, of the two brand-new tracks on the 10th Anniversary Edition of Give Up, they definitely picked the better of the two songs to do a video for). The duo’s videos have always been interesting, so let’s just chalk it up to a good bit of their legacy and hope that they’ll make another record before Owl City does.

Jimmy Tamborello’s 2001 landmark Life Is Full of Possibilities bridged the worlds of IDM and pop, setting lush melodies atop glitchy electro beats and launching one of the aughts’ most memorable singles in “This Is the Dream of Evan and Chan.” Now, a decade or so on, we asked Tamborello to reflect on the album’s impact – and the new expanded reissue from Sub Pop.

This release indicates that the Postal Service are an important and worthy band in the indie-rock world. As far as side projects go, the Postal Service has to rank as one of the most worthwhile.
