Sub Pop announced recently that its welcomed Jimmy Tamborellos Dntel project into the fold. While Tamborellos move may not be that surprisingseeing as Sub Pop is already home to the Postal Servicethe announcement of an upcoming record has some surprising twists. Without a release date or tracklist at the moment, and only tentatively being named Dumbluck, the record boasts contributors such as Bright Eyes, Jenny Lewis, Grizzly Bear, Mia Doi Todd, Lali Puna, and Fog. No, thats not the surprising part. Whats surprising is that Tamborello is actually singing on one of the tracks likely to make the album, and its apparently very, very good. Well have to wait and see.
If thats not enough lap-pop for you, another Tamborello project (that also features Ms. Jenny Lewis on one of the songs), James Figurine, has its record Mistake Mistake Mistake Mistake coming out on Plug Research on July 11.
