They Might Be Giants: Independent Music for Independent People
They Might Be Giants are an original band from Brooklyn, New York, founded one hundred years ago by John Flansburgh and John Linnell, and now including Dan Miller on guitar, Danny Weinkauf on bass, and Marty Beller on the drums. TMBG work continuously — writing, recording, and touring. They Might Be Giants have also been involved in creating original music for numerous television, film, and advertising projects.
They Might Be Giants’ latest album is a compilation called Idlewild. It is a survey of the last ten years or so of the band’s output. You can get it on iTunes or Amazon, from a local record store, or
directly from the band on CD, vinyl, FLAC, or MP3. Be sure to check out the latest video “Tesla” (featuring nine remixes) and the (1) (2) (3) amazing winners of the “Am I Awake?” video contest.
They Might Be Giants is about to release a free download of their first album recorded live — the first in a series of free projects coming out in 2014. They also have an on-going free audio, and sometimes video, podcast. The band is also currently working on two new projects — an album for kids and an album for adults, and plan on returning to touring around the world in 2015 in support of them.
If you need even more free TMBG, check out They Might Be Giants’ app for iPhone and Android that streams a different song everyday. It also remembers the last five days of songs and will link you directly to the iTunes and Google Play stores if the spirit moves you.
There are also always free songs waiting for you when you join TMBG’s mailing list. Of course it is also entirely private and exclusive to TMBG. They will keep you informed of all live shows, video postings, and free stuff, but never ever share that information. Sign up here…
They Might Be Giants are proud to have won two Grammys, sold a boat-load of albums, and worked with many great record companies, and even some stinkers. For a complete, almost day-to-day history of everything TMBG have ever done, go to www.tmbw.net, the fan-created They Might Be Giants wiki.
