Figurine The Heartfelt
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: March
It‘s difficult to put Jimmy "Postal Service" Tamborello‘s output as one-third of Figurine into proper perspective when The Heartfelt was actually released a year before Give Up, and around the same time as his grown-up Life is Full of Possibilities album (as Dntel). Figurine tracks are breakup odes for outer space high school students, while Postal Service songs chronicle the unexpected Earth girl rebound. Fans nostalgic for bouncy Europop will find much to love on this reissue. Those looking for a headier mix of beats will enjoy IDM-esque nibbles of electro and micro-house alongside a fairly constant drip of sugar and retro kitsch.
