Beautiful Rat Records would like to present our SIXTH release- We Might Be Giants! This release is a tribute to one of the most eclectic, catchy, and silly bands making cool music, loved by nerds and hardcore music snobs worldwide- They Might Be Giants! We have an array of covers in a variety of genres as eclectic as the originals themselves!
They Might Be Giants are one of those bands who I think are hard to be a casual fan of, because once you listen to them and fall in love with their music, you fall HARD. I have memories growing up hearing them play the into for Malcom in the Middle, hearing my AP American history play my class their music to teach us about James K. Polk, and I have memories of being a teenager listening to Mink Car and falling in love with music in a new way I haven't before then. Heck, I think Glean was one of the first records I ever bought! I digress, but my point here is that this band in particular is close to my heart, and not only to my heart- but to the hearts of music fans everywhere.
100% of the purchases of this release will be donated to RAICES, an organization that provides litigation services to low-income immigrants pro-bono. All people have a right to migrate as they please, and immigrants (especially those of low income and of color) are often stripped of their rights, given an unfair trial, and deported. If you want to donate directly, you can at www.raicestexas.org
