As mentioned, Brooklyn indie legends They Might Be Giants released their 16th album, Nanobots, about a month ago and you can stream the whole thing via Spotify, and check out a video to single "Icky," below.

The band are currently on tour and have just added a free in-store at Williamsburg, Brooklyn vinyl haven Academy Records Annex on Tuesday, April 16. It starts at 7 PM and the band will stick around to sign copies of Nanobots afterwards. Updated dates are listed below.

Yeah why care about a band who has been around 32 years and has 16 albums. We need to care about Flying Lotus or something. Hey assholes lets see what you acomplish over 30 years instead of getting $10 an hour at Mcdonalds.

Pretty sure TMBG have the last laugh here. They're vets who have managed to turn their music love into a career. Can't think of many smaller artists who will achieve the same now adays...

brooklyn band back when brooklyn was still dangerous

They've made a lot of money selling their music for ads, tv show themes, cartoons, etc. They were kind of ahead of the curve on that too.

Who is "Flambergh"?

Their current album and tour seem to be getting great reviews, from what I've read online. Don't understand all the hate for such a quality act.

Lucky for me, I don't have anyone to sleep with anyway, so who needs sterilization!! Heard "The Guitar" in a Buick commercial (of all things) the other day, and it got TMBG back in heavy rotation for me. Fan since I had "Flood" on tape in 10th Grade, still haven't grown up. YAY!!

Anybody remember Angela Anaconda? I rather liked that, was the first time I'd seen this style of animation.
