They Might Be Giants “Phone Power” Vinyl LP 2016 New
Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release. Phone Power is They Might Be Giants’ 19th studio album and the last of three albums compiling songs from the 2015 iteration of Dial-A-Song. After an incredible year of creativity, posting 52 new songs over the course of 2015, They Might Be Giants and Idlewild Recordings are proud to announce the release of their new disc Phone Power. Boasting 18 pop gems, Phone Power continues the all-killer, no-filler tradition of the band’s current efforts. The disc includes “I Love You for Psychological Reasons”, the stand out track that will be lodged in your head with barely a second listen. Recorded in a secret location in New York City with Pat Dillett (Sufjan Stevens, St. Vincent, The National, David Byrne) this album finds the Giants working mostly in the same power-packed configuration as their hard-working live line up, with a minimum of production embellishments. Happily, almost all of these songs have accompanying preview videos on YouTube! They Might Be Giants have been delivering highly energetic, highly melodic and highly imaginative music for over thirty years. They write, record and perform continuously. Brooklyn’s original alternative rockers have made more than a dozen albums, sold more than a million, and won a couple of Grammys. They have created DVD and book projects for kids, and contributed themes and songs to numerous television and film projects.
