I heard one these tracks on my way to work this morning and was instantly intrigued.
I’m a big fan of both Dntel (aka Jimmy Tamborello) and Enya (no joke, Only Time is the best way to cure a hangover), so obviously I searched the good ol’ blogosphere for more of this the first chance I got. I was pleasantly surprised to not only find the song I had just heard, but the entire LP is available as a free download, courtesy of the good people at dublab!
Here’s what Mr. Tamborello had to say about the LP:
” I make music as Dntel, my last few releases have come out on Sub Pop. I’ve loved Enya since I was a teenager and I just finished this mini-album of remixes I did this past fall after a marathon revisiting of her records. I’m really proud of it, but unfortunately I couldn’t figure out a way to give it a legitimate release. I felt like if I tried to get it to her through any of the usual channels it would probably get shut down before it even made it to her ears. Hopefully nobody will mind it floating around, it was made with love and no money will be made off of it. I hope you enjoy it!!”
