Clubland features: They Might Be Giants, Ivan and Alyosha

Larger than life: Since 1986, They Might Be Giants have released 16 albums (including three children’s albums), won two Grammys, posted new tracks and demos on an answering machine dubbed “Dial-A-Song,” landed material in a variety of TV shows and movies (including the theme songs to Malcolm in the Middle and The Daily Show), hosted their own monthly podcast and generally maintained a hyper-creative, unpredictable presence in an often stale and unimaginative industry.

California dreaming: Though the band hails from the grey, rainy climate of Seattle, Ivan and Alyosha’s sprawling folk-pop is sunny and optimistic, more suited for a spring drive with the top down than a rainy afternoon in Washington. The band brings its rich vocal harmonies and slow-burning rhythms to Emerald Lounge on Sunday, April 14.
