Dark Star Orchestra 2011 Summer/Fall Tour News

Dark Star Orchestra is currently on-tour. They'll be in Colorado in just another week, before heading up to the true Great Northwest.. in Alakska!  Check out a full list of tour dates below as well as updates to their current summer tour.

As the wheel of the year begins the slow downward turn into winter, it's time to think of the long nights and frosty stars. Where will we be when the snow starts to fall? On our Fly Through the Night tour, flying above the city lights of the East Coast, strung together like clusters of diamonds on the black planet below. Finding comfort in some of our usual haunts in DC and Virginia as well as touching down in some new venues in New England, we'll sing a little while for you, and then fly on. If you're in our fan club, tickets are already available; the general public can get tickets starting on August 5th. Visit our tour page for details.

Sometimes we visit your country

Wondering where we'll be carried away in March of 2012? To that great city of blended cultures and sidewalk cafes, clean canals and bicycles, Van Gogh and anything goes, the Venice of the North. It's Amsterdam, and we're thrilled to be playing for All Good and Vision International's 6th Jam in the Dam. Come see the silent seeds all burst into bloom and decay. Wait - don't visit our tour page for this one - go straight to the Jam in the Dam site, and check it out!

They Might Be Giants Release "Join Us" Today

They Might Be Giants released their new album, Join Us, released in all digital and physical outlets today through Idlewild/Rounder Records. On Join Us we find the Brooklyn originals have returned to rock and to their singular sensibility that made them an instant phenomenon in the world of alternative rock. Receiving acclaim from USA Today, SPIN Magazine, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Los Angeles Times, New York Magazine and more, check it out for yourself!  The full album  is streaming on AOL Spinner and you can download album track “Judy Is Your Viet Nam” MP3 where it premiered on RCRD LBL today or HERE.

The winner has been chosen for TMBG’s fan video contest judged by John Hodgeman for their single “Can’t Keep Johnny Down”. The winners, Mohit Jaswal, Euardo Urueana, and Justin Dean, have created a cleverly backwards video which capture the true soaring spirit of Johnny!

The record opens with “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” -- a summer-perfect pop single that will get instantly stuck in your head and make you want to roll down the windows. Immediately following, the caffeinated fuzz of “You Probably Get That a Lot” will command you to pogo! “When Will You Die” features TMBG’s own formula for punk. The short and sweet  “Judy Is Your Viet Nam” tells an anthemic tale of unrequited infatuation.  The pure folk-pop of “Old Pine Box” showcases the band's signature harmonies, handclaps and the always popular, never anticipated vocoder. The wit TMBG are known for is at it’s finest on Join Us, album closer “You Don’t Like Me” has lyrical gems like “I can see the future like it’s in the past”.

Notorious for their energized live show, They Might Be Giants will launch an international tour this Fall, hitting 6 countries and over 50 US cities. Be sure to catch TMBG live in your city!

Sweet melodies and psych guitar freak outs on Mikal Cronin's debut

Stepping away from the rhythm section of Orange County surf-punk bashers The Moonhearts, Mikal Cronin has emerged with a fully realized, cohesive and beautiful debut self-titled LP, out September 20, 2011 via Chicago's Trouble In Mind.
With long-time friend and collaborator Ty Segall producing, Eric Bauer [Ty Segall, Royal Baths] running the tape machine and guests like Thee Oh Sees' John Dwyer, Mikal blends sweet melodies and chords with chunky, psychedelic guitar freak-outs.
If you've ever wondered what the Beach Boys would sound like if they became pals with the Ramones, Mikal Cronin offers his sonic vision and joins Ty Segall out on the road this summer and fall, including stops at Total Trash Fest and Goner Fest, to share his California fuzz take on gorgeously unexpected psych garage pop.

They Might Be Giants Announce First Leg of International Tour!

They Might Be Giants new album, Join Us, is the recording that their fans have been waiting 20 years for! Impossibly catchy, sometimes strange and always original the album is a stunning return to form. On Join Us we find the Brooklyn originals have returned to rock and to their singular sensibility that made them an instant phenomenon in the world of alternative rock. Join Us is an electrifying mix of clever, maddeningly catchy songwriting and studio mastery. The album was created in the brand new private studio of their long-time collaborator Patrick Dillett (David Byrne, Mary J. Blige, Tegan and Sara, Doveman). Join Us will be released in all digital and physical outlets July 19, 2011 through Idlewild/Rounder Records.


The record opens with “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” -- a summer-perfect pop single that will get instantly stuck in your head and make you want to roll down the windows. Immediately following, the caffeinated fuzz of “You Probably Get That a Lot” will command you to pogo! “When Will You Die” features TMBG’s own formula for punk.

The short and sweet  “Judy Is Your Viet Nam” tells an anthemic tale of unrequited infatuation.  The pure folk-pop of “Old Pine Box” showcases the band's signature harmonies, handclaps and the always popular, never anticipated vocoder. The wit TMBG are known for is at it’s finest on Join Us, album closer “You Don’t Like Me” has lyrical gems like “I can see the future like it’s in the past”.  Check out the “Can’t Keep Johnny Down” MP3 HERE.

They Might Be Giants unlikely success story started nearly three decades ago with their Dial-A-Song service. High energy, low budget videos broke them into heavy rotation on MTV and the rest would soon become alternative rock history.  Along the way the band has become the recipients of two GRAMMYs and a platinum record (1990’s Flood). They recorded numerous themes including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, their GRAMMY-winning theme Malcolm In the Middle and many more.

They Might Be Giants will launch the first leg of their first international tour in over a decade this Fall, hitting 6 countries and over 50 US cities. Notorious for their energized live show, don’t miss TMBG live in your city!

Architecture in Helsinki Get Remixed by Javelin, New Album Out Today!

Masters of modernist pop Architecture in Helsinki release their new album Moment Bends today on V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records.  To celebrate the occasion the band is sharing a remix of their single “Contact High” by Brooklyn duo Javelin.  Click HERE to stream/download this lush, shimmering take on the song.  Click HERE to watch the video for the original version of “Contact High,” which Paste Magazine calls “summer’s first mixtape must” and Prefix Mag calls “absurdly catchy.”  Don’t miss the band as they kick off their US tour next month!

In large parts, Moment Bends is in dialogue with the dance floor, without being a slave to any particular rhythm.  Like the best pop albums it bubbles with an immediacy while revealing new layers after repeated listens.  It also showcases the band’s most concise and sophisticated songwriting yet.  Recorded over a two year period in the their studio space, Buckingham Palace, songwriter Cameron Bird says: “Moment Bends was all about being at one with our ideas, obsessed with popular music and falling in love with our hometown.  We wanted to build a record to get lost in.  A record that always feels exactly what you are feeling”.
