Jimmy Tamborello, aka Dntel, didn’t make this Check Yo’ Ponytail 2 mixtape to promote his forthcoming tour with the One AM Radio or the reissue of his debut, Life Is Full Of Possibilities. According to MTV Hive, he made the mix after finding out that British electro-rockers Seefeel had canceled their Check Yo’ Ponytail gig. Tamborello said that this 35-minute blend of mostly ambient material is “what I’d want to hear on the way home after seeing [Seefeel] play songs that had a big impact on my musical upbringing.” Makes sense to me. The mixtape features tracks from Jamie XX, Aybee, Enya, Leyland Kirby, and many others.
You can stream and download the mixtape below. The Life Is Full Of Possibilities reissue drops Oct. 25 on Sub Pop.
