Song Exploder
Guests: 
Jimmy Tamborello

Our first guest on Song Exploder is Jimmy Tamborello, aka Dntel, aka one half of The Postal Service (the other half being Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie). Jimmy breaks down "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight," and talks about his instruments, his influences, and how he accidentally made a loop out of Jenny Lewis's backing vocals.
