Your Daddy Is Darth Vader

New TMBG


So I picked up the new TMBG album, The Spine, today; I must say, it is quite good–a nice mix of old style Apollo 18 sounds with newer Mink Car and Factory Showroom tunes. While rapping with EJ about the new tracks, I came across a quiz: “Which TMBG Album Are You?”. One could never resist….


Which They Might Be Giants album are you?
