To hear many tell it, shy American indie kids never had electronic music really made for them until Dntel (Jimmy Tamborello) got with Death Cab's Ben Gibbard to form The Postal Service. "(This Is) The Dream Of Evan And Chan" is the 2001 prototype for that project and one of the first instances I can recall of a computer going totally twee. Gibberd, so poppy and so swoony, leads the way, but the mixture of crackle and swift programming in the production is what made their eventual album Give Up so successful. Revisit this one on the new deluxe reissue of Life Is Full Of Possibilities, which is out now on Sub Pop.
