Editorial Reviews

From the Artist

In November of 2001, my band Figurine went on a short tour of Germany with Lali Puna. Our label there, Monika, set us up with a driver to get from show to show. She only brought three or four tapes to listen to on the drives, mostly techno. I'd never paid much attention to dance-floor oriented electronic music, but listening to the same tapes over and over again (especially Kompakt's pop-leaning Total 3 and some 7" vinyl on Parfum) while driving through Germany made a giant impression on me.

So this record was supposed to be an extra melodic, minimal techno record with some sparse vocals. Instead, my technopop tendencies got the best of me, the songs slowly filled up, and this is what I ended up with. It's called Mistake Mistake Mistake Mistake, because that's what I kept chanting to the beat while I worked on the tracks.

John Tejada (Palette Recordings, Plug Research) assisted me along the way, adding sounds to some of the songs, helping write and arrange a few, and then mixing everything in the end. Sonya Westcott (Arthur and Yu) sang with me on "55566688833." Morgan Nagler (Whispertown 2000) contributed some lyrics and vocals to "Pretend It's A Race And I'm On Your Side." Erlend Oye (Kings of Convenience, Whitest Boy Alive) sang some words written by designer/animator/poet Geoff McFetridge on "All The Way To China." Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley, Postal Service) sang with me on "You Again."

I think that's all you need to know before you listen to the record, hope you like it!

With Love, James Figurine

3.0 out of 5 stars Dntel meets The Postal Service July 29, 2006
Format:Audio CD
It seems as if Jimmy Tamborello just can't make up his mind. On some days he's glitching his way through elaborate musical compositions under the name Dntel, while on other's he's one third of the electro-pop trio "Figuring" or one half of "The Postal Service" (and let's not forget his days in "Strictly Ballroom"). Yes, if there's one man who has toured the far reaches of the electronic indie universe, it is undoubtedly Jimmy Tamborello.

Tamborello's latest album comes to us under the name of "James Figurine."

"Mistake Mistake Mistake Mistake" gives those uf us who are Dntel fans, a little bit to be excited about. In many ways this album can be viewed as a Postal Service/Dntel hybrid, featuring many of the same qualities as a Dntel album, yet also boasts some incredibly catchy Postal Service-ish hooks. "55566688833" ("love" in text messaging language), for example, contains a pretty catchy hook that has been stuck in my head for days now, while "Ruining the Sundays" and many others on the album sound like songs right out of a Dntel handbook.

Though "minimalist techno" would be the best way to describe this album, it is much more complex than that. Featuring elements of pop, electonica, techno, and experimental electro, the album really delivers, even if it comes off as a bit unfocused at times.

Recommended for fans of Dntel, Figurine, The Postal Service, and Magnetic Fields or anyone who feels like exploring how far electronic music can go.

Key Tracks:

1. "55566688833"

2. "Left Overs"

3. "You Again"

4. "One More Regret"

5. "All the Way to China"

5.0 out of 5 stars For the true DNTEL enthusiast July 19, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
If you love rare DNTEL, then you will love this. Mistake Mistake Mistake Mistake is less like "Life Is Full of Possibilities" and the Postal Service but more like his rare glitchy albums "Early Works for me if it Works for you", and "Something Always goes Wrong". DNTEL is epic as always, even as James Figurine.

4.0 out of 5 stars cool September 25, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a new side project by Jimmy Tamborello who is in The Postal Service. He also has toured with Lali Puna. So it's a little mix between those two worlds. So we have a bunch cool electronic tracks, much like Notwist and Postal Service. Most of the vocals are this spoken Kraftwerk type of singing. The beats on "Ruining To Sundays" are amazing. The song "You Again" features Jenny Lewis. She has an ability to turn everything to gold. This is a pretty good record for Plug Research. I dig it.
