TMBG's New EP Out Today on iTunes

Other than material geared towards the grade-schooler set, it has been four long years since They Might Be Giants have put out a proper rock album. On July 19, the long wait is over when the duo releases the full-length LP 'Join Us.' That may seem like a long wait, and the folks at Idlewood/Rounder must have agreed because they have decided to give us all a sample the band's 15th studio album. Starting today you can go to iTunes for four advance tracks from 'Join Us.' The songs can be purchased individually for 99 cents each, or you can preorder the entire album for $9.99 and get these four songs now. I have to say I'm a lapsed TMBG fan, but the new material sounds like a return to their best days in the '80s and early '90s. Here's a little listen. Also, Spinner talked to TMBG's John Flansburgh about the album last month, and you can read that interview here.
