Hello everyone! John Flansburgh of TMBG here! Hope everyone is having a perfect summer. There are so many things going on right now with the release of Here Comes Science on Amazon and iTunes coming up on Sept. 1, and going nationwide on Sept. 22. This is probably the first of two messages we'll be sending out this week. Pardon our in-box imposition.

Very excited to tell you that the video to "Electric Car" has just been posted on youtube and we would love for you to check it out. It was directed by the brilliant folks at Tiny Inventions, sung by the ever-wonderful Robin Goldwasser, and features the ever-powerful Tricerichops Horns (along with some mellotron for good measure). This is the link! And please tell your friends!

The songs AND the videos will be out for one very low price on iTunes, although we won't have that information until moments before its availability.

Amazon is ready for your pre-order right now -- here is the link -- and we are pretty positive if you order tonight you will see the full-length DVD and CD set in your mailbox on Sept. 1 or 2. They are REALLY good at getting the robots to work overnight there at Amazon. And the price is nuts there too--just ten bucks for a full length DVD and CD combo pack.

LATE BREAKING SCENE: TMBG will be performing a short acoustic set at the free event for NPRs Radiolab coming up in Sept. While it is free it is a ticketed event and first come first serve. Tickets will probably become available on line on Friday, and will probably run out quick, so look out for a quick announcement on Friday

Thanks to all for all the good vibes. Hope you enjoy the new stuff!
