New Music From They Might Be Giants

New Tunes from Islands

nicdiEarlier this summer we brought you “No You Don’t,” one of the new tunes from the upcoming Islands record.  Now we’re pleased to let you get a listen to “Vapours.”  It’s a lot more stripped down, at least in comparison to the Arm’s Way, which allows Nic’s genius to shine on through. Give it a whirl before the album comes out in September.

New Music From Daniel Johnston

daniel-johnstonAustin icon Daniel Johnston is gearing up to release his first new material in quite some time and this time he’s had some help from friends in high places.  This new single “Freedom” will appear on upcoming album Is and Always Was due out October 6th via High Wire Music.  Johnston apparently worked closely with producer/musician Jason Falkner on the project and the outcome is some of the fullest and most well produced material we’ve ever heard from the singer/songwriter.
