“Oh my god, They Might Be Giants is underrated.
That’s the best band of all time. Better than the Stones,
better than the Beatles, better than Oasis,
and better than Crosby, Stills and Nash.”
– Open Mike Eagle, Pitchfork “Over/Under”
Why is the world in love again? They Might Be Giants
has announced the release of I Like Fun, a remarkable
15-track album to be available physically and digitally
on January 19, 2018.
I Like Fun jumps with surprises, vitality, and the startling
point of view of these Brooklyn originals. Over a year in the making,
songwriters and band founders John Linnell and John Flansburgh
draw on themes of dread, death, and disappointment and set them
to their driving, hyper-melodic music. The results will leave even the
most heavy-hearted among us with a renewed sense of wonder.
Fresh and sonically adventurous, the band’s command of the studio
and the song is in rare form from beginning to end.
Find out more and preview the record here.
On I Like Fun, the spotlight is also on the band’s formidable
long-standing live lineup; drummer Marty Beller, bassist
Danny Weinkauf and lead guitarist Dan Miller. While the group enjoys
a reputation for delivering one of the liveliest shows around, the album
accomplishes the rare feat of capturing that ecstatic intensity on disc.
Co-produced with and mixed by Patrick Dillett (St. Vincent, Donald
Fagen, The National, Mary J. Blige), the album was tracked and mixed
at the brand-new Reservoir Studios—site of the legendary
Skyline Studios where TMBG recorded
their platinum-selling album Flood.
2018 will also see the return of TMBG's Dial-A-Song service, with
weekly installments toll free at (844) 387-6962, www.dialasong.com,
and on streaming sites everywhere, featuring
new music all year long!
