We were recently interrogated (but not banged) by the kind folks at Interrobang. Here’s the great article they wrote about us.
We’ve released two new videos from our album 2776.
STOP THE PRESSES, about the death of print media, features R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, Zach Sherwin (Comedy Central Records), Colton Dunn (Key & Peele) and Brandon Johnson (Monsters University).
LIVE IT NOW, the last sports anthem you’ll ever need, features the Sklar Brothers, J.K. Simmons, Michael Ian Black, J. Elvis Weinstein (MST3K) and more as they battle a high school girl’s basketball team.
We did a TEDx Talk about the Levinson Brothers method of collaboration.
To celebrate the holiday season, and because it’s 4 years running and we can’t get enough of novelty Christmas songs, we worked with 2776 partner Rob Kutner to create this new Christmas anthem. Featuring Brendon Small (Metalocalpyse), Matt Walsh (VEEP, UCB), Susanna Hoffs (The Bengals) Right Said Fred, Kelcey Ayer of Local Natives and comics Jordan Black and Josh Fadem, it’s probably one of the most listenable annoying holiday tunes of all time. Maybe?
Available on iTunes, all proceeds go to support our favorite comedian-friendly charity OneKid OneWorld
We just gave a TEDx talk about collaboration at TEDx Dayton. Watch this space, our talk should be online within the month.
