Were Dntel's third album ever to receive the typically lavish and usually necessary reissue treatment so many albums do these days, this material would have made for a worthy bonus disc, showing peeks at his process, featuring castaways worth revisiting, and offering hints towards his future. It's worth noting that Early Works for Me II is a pretty lavish physical package in its own right, and remains plenty memorable for having little to no vocal guests.
Dntel’s Jimmy Tamborello has always had one hand with pop melodies and the other with experimental electronics, and we can hear his initial efforts in this regard on Early Works For Me If It Works For You.

Jimmy Tamborello's breakthrough album as Dntel, 2001's Life Is Full of Possibilities, was something of a watershed in the evolution of the gentle, organic strains of electronic music that coalesced in the early 2000s as lap-pop and folktronica, particularly as those strands intertwined with elements of dream pop and vocal indie rock. It was also, as a precursor to the Postal Service, an indirect harbinger of the decade's synth pop resurgence, though that's another story
