'Postal Service' rocks

Did you know there is a electronica-meets-indie-rock duo called the 'Postal Service'?

According to a write up on, band members Ben Gibbard, who lived in Los Angeles, and Seattle- based Jimmy Tamborello formed the group by mail by sending CDs of their music and lyrics back and forth eventually producing their first album - Give Up.

The process worked well, they named their collaboration Postal Service , which is under license from the U.S. Postal Service. You can even buy their CDs on

"The record relied on the postal service — it wouldn’t have been made without it," Tamborello once told a sold-out performance at the Palace in Hollywood.

No word whether they collect stamps. Rock on, boys, rock on.
