The 2¢ Show Now Available!

The antique androids from Steam Powered Giraffe announce today the release of their second studio album, “The 2¢ Show”!

“The 2¢ Show” gives listeners a one-way ticket with the robots on-the-road through an antique America that is filled with both magic and mystery. Join Rabbit, The Spine, and The Jon as they travel to romanticized echoes of various eras. Eras such as the wild and weird west, where Jackalopes yodeled alongside singing cowboys and Giant Rattlesnakes were king. Aboard an enchanted steamboat, they head deep into a mystical south, finding Bog Spirits who boogie to twisted Zydeco tunes. From a decaying past, dieselpunk fables and crooning records melt with electric folk pop and psychedelic radiation to create the unique, yet timeless sound Steam Powered Giraffe makes.

Released today with the new album is the group's newest music video, “Automatonic Electronic Harmonics,” one of the featured tracks on “The 2¢ Show.” Click here to visit the video on YouTube!

In celebration of the album's release, Steam Powered Giraffe is holding a special party in their hometown on Friday, June 8th in San Diego, California. Join the robots for a historical night where many of the new album's songs will be played LIVE for the first time!

Late June sees the robots back at the World Famous San Diego Zoo for over 70 days of performances from June 23rd – September 4th. You'll be able to enjoy the new songs and all of the amazing animals at the zoo all summer long!

“The 2¢ Show” is available for purchase today from the Steam Powered Giraffe website on a physical CD that ships with a 32 page mini art book. Inside are the lyrics to the songs and beautiful illustrations by Bunny Bennett, Jonathan Sprague, and Samuel Luke.

The album will also be purchasable from iTunes and many other online music distributors!

So grab your copy, settle in, and enjoy the latest release from San Diego's own Steam Powered Giraffe!
