In a significant coup for the grassroots internet audio format, quirky band They Might Be Giants (TMBG) has signed MP3 pioneer GoodNoise Corp as its distributor. From Thursday February 18, five TMBG albums and 100 tracks were available for purchase from or from the band’s own site at It doesn’t stop there. In the next few months, GoodNoise and the band plan to release 15 new tracks.
