New from Dntel (the "other" guy from Postal Service)

A new track just came out from Dntel, an electronic musician who is commonly called James Figurine as well. He was Ben Gibbard's partner for Postal Service. This is a little more British DJ-ish than what you'd expect from something like "We Will Become Silhouettes", but you can still hear sparkles of "Clark Gable" if you make a big enough leap.

Flaming Lips & Neon Indian - "Is David Bowie Dying?"

Thank you to Stephen and Alex for allowing me to author great music along side you all. Like you, I will be sharing things I listened to at some point during the day. But I hope to mix things up and share gems we all either forgot about or things from Left Field to freshen up your day. I will attempt to share a little background information as well per song.

With that, here's my first entry: "Is David Bowie Dying?" by a Flaming Lips and Neon Indian collaboration. It was a limited release you can't really find anywhere, but thankfully You Tube has it. It was released initially as mp3s on a flash stick...inside gummy skulls. I had a chance to see it live at Summerfest last year, though. Very interesting.
