Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, aka Thievery Corporation, have thrived for 20 years without a radio hit, a big budget video, or major label backing. Regardless, TC has managed to do high-profile TV appearances, sell millions of albums, and continue to expand the fan base worldwide. They’ve collaborated with such luminaries as David Byrne, The Flaming Lips, Femi Kuti, and Bebel Gilberto. Since 1996, Garza and Hilton have virtually defined an entire sub-genre of electronic music. And now, they’re ready to embark on yet another journey with the release of their new album, The Temple of I & I. This monster mash aggregate will put you in the groove with a massive live band.
