Dntel - Dumb Luck mp3 album

Dumb Luck is a studio album by American electronic music artist Dntel. It was released through Sub Pop on April 24, 2007. Recorded between 2002 and 2006, it includes vocal contributions from Ed Droste (Grizzly Bear), Valerie Trebeljahr and Markus Acher (Lali Puna), Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), Grant Olsen and Sonya Westcott (Arthur & Yu), Mia Doi Todd, Andrew Broder (Fog), Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), and Christopher and Jennifer Gunst (Mystic Chords of Memory).

Just don't forget That it's dumb luck that got you here Don't fool yourself Misfortune's waiting for the best time to appear To make it clear That all the courage and the talent that you had Was just in dreams And when you wake up You will beg to get it back To get it back.

Dumb Luck" adds some flutter and wow to what sounds to be a melodic little folk-pop ditty, while "To a Fault" layers voices onto waves of noise. The folk-glitch harmonizing continues with "Roll On," which is almost pop-friendly. Indeed, much of the album flirts with gentle pop melodies; a hint of country creeps through onto "The Distance

Dumb Luck is the third studio album by electronic artist Dntel. It was released on April 24, 2007. The album is also Dntel's first LP under the Sub Pop label. The sound of Dumb Luck is a less glitch-oriented and more electroacoustic sound than more of his earlier work, with tracks like "To a Fault" and "Dreams," although electronics are the primary source for such songs as "Dumb Luck" and "Natural Resources". The songs recorded on this album were recorded between the years.

As "Dumb Luck" opens Dntel's latest, with Jimmy Tamborello singing solo about how success is just a fluke ("it's dumb luck that got you here"), we shouldn't necessarily assume he's feeling sorry for himself over the gold-selling crossover smash he enjoyed as one half of the Postal Service, a project that began at the. end of Dntel's last album as a singular collaboration with Ben Gibbard called "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan"

For a time, it seemed like the Postal Service might overshadow Tamborello's more venerable experimental project, Dntel, so it's nice to see that he returned to it with Dumb Luck, which arrived six years after the brilliant Life Is Full of Possibilities. It's even nicer to discover that Dntel still has an identity distinct from the Postal Service: Dumb Luck is another lovely, impressionistic collage of dream pop, indie rock, and electronic sounds, graced with vocals by some of indie's most distinctive singers.

Almost every track on Dumb Luck is different from the one before it. While album opener (and title track) Dumb Luck sounds kind of like a fuzzed out version of what would be on Dntel’s first effort, To a Fault, which features the after mentioned Grizzly Bear’s guest appearance, sounds like nothing Tamborello has ever put his name on before. Cloaked in noise and reverb, To a Fault mixes Grizzly Bear’s freak folk meets My Morning Jacket-esque vocals and guitars with the cutesy electronic drums and mellow keyboards that call The Postal Service’s Give Up home.
