ALL ABOUT TMBG's FREE APP
They Might Be Giants new FREE iphone app is out.
And it works on iPads too. And there is an Android version
in the works. Get it here bit.ly/Wl9fGw
Yes it's a different song every day, and streams five songs in full. Tuesday features the latest TMBG,
KinderThursdays spotlights songs for the tots,
Throwback Fridays crack opens TMBG's 80s vault.
If you like TMBG and appreciate the free app, help us band out and
give us a positive review with five stars at iTunes.
That stuff really matters evidently.
Technical notes: The very first time you launch it be in a room with great wi-fi--
not a car or a train--that way it can load in all five songs in a flash with no hiccups.
If you have an old iphone (an more specifically an old operating system)
the app might load in funny. If it doesn't work seamlessly, delete
the app and reload it. Second time should be a charm.
NEW LP NANOBOTS ARRIVES 3/5
PREVIEW EP OUT NOW
We want to remind you that the brand new 3 song Nanobots EP
is out at iTunes http://bit.ly/StMF1d and Amazon http://amzn.to/VQY2jP.
The songs previewed are Black Ops, Call You Mom and Lost My Mind.
We want to encourage everyone to get it and change our lives. If you are
unaware of iTunes' "complete my album" function, the $3 for the EP
will go directly to the full album when it's released--no buying twice.
