Anyone familiar with L.A.-based internet radio station dublab will likely know Jimmy Tamborello’s show, Dying Songs. Over the years, he's delivered everything from The Field to Sascha Funke to Charles Mingus via the airwaves, and now he's brought the show to the XLR8R Podcast with Dying Songs for XLR8R.
In the style of the show, he embraces eclecticism and hurls us through an ambient landscape of new-age jazz, lush acoustics, minimal techno, and The Cocteau Twins. Hell, even Santa Claus is digging this mix.
For past Dying Songs mixes, check the dublab site.
