Tune Exploder – The Postal Service


“The District Sleeps Alone Tonight”
Deluxe Anniversary Version

The primary episode of Tune Exploder, about The Postal Service track “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight,” got here out 10 years in the past, in January 2014. To rejoice the tenth anniversary of the podcast, we’re doing what bands do, and placing out a deluxe, expanded version of our very first launch: this model contains a new interview, new insights, and new items of the track and demo.

The Postal Service shaped in 2001. Their debut album got here out in 2003, and it was a sport changer. Their mixture of digital music and indie rock not solely bought over 1,000,000 copies; their songs had been all over the place on TV and in movie, and influenced a era of artists. Final 12 months, they performed sold-out concert events throughout the US in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of the album, and there are extra reveals to come back in 2024. A number of weeks in the past, I spoke to Ben Gibbard, and I mixed that with my authentic interview from 2013 with Jimmy Tamborello. And right here, collectively, the 2 of them inform the story of how they made their track “The District Sleeps Alone Tonight.”
