They Might Be Giants
By Drew Westphal
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
It's They Might Be Giants official and totally free song app. Like TMBGs original Dial-A-Song, the app has a different song every day. The app holds five of the freshest posted tracks at all times, and all are directly linked to iTunes. It also connects you directly to TMBGs social media and free MP3 club. From Don't Let's Start to Nanobots the app even includes brand new tracks, GRAMMY-winning kids music and TMBGs beloved television themes.
Created by TMBG, Drew Westphal AKA Scarface, graphic designer Paul Sahre, and artist Hine Mizushima, with thanks to Bar/None, WEA, Disney, Concord and Idlewild Recordings.
What's New in Version 1.1
- Songs play through to next song
- Bug fixes
Fun little app, looking forward to more!
Great to hear the new songs, sound quality is excellent. The only problem is that each song stops at the end requiring a "pause/play" to continue to the next track. The release notes claim this is fixed but it's still an issue on my 4th Gen iPod.
Hope to see some b-sides, demos, DAS and new rarities pop up on here like on the old Clock Radio!
Very cool app overall. It has that TMBG "charm". This is a great way to get info, songs and other goodies to the fans. I hope the "?" button changes every once in a while. One suggestion - Add a button with a link for "This Might Be A Wiki" on the URL page to make it easy for everyone to find out everything they want to know (and some things they don't want to know) about the band.
If you also have had a birdhouse permanently embedded in your soul since 1990, then this is the app for you! Even for those who dont know much about TMBG, this is a FREE, repeat FREE awesome music app that will put a smile on your face even during the worst days of the zombie apocalypse. I digress. In short : gigantic win!
