Thievery Corporation is on the Eighteenth Street Lounge record label named after the swank DC club owned by Eric Hilton, but several of their singles and EP's appear on the 4AD and !K7 labels.
In 2002, they released The Richest Man in Babylon on their ESL label. This fifteen track album is similar in sound and timbre to The Mirror Conspiracy and features performances by vocalists Emiliana Torrini, Pam Bricker, and LouLou.
Indra, the third track from The Mirror Conspiracy, was featured in the opening shots of The West Wing season five episode Gaza and in an MTV(India) promo for the programme Non Stop Hits.
The group also received support from Scrubs star, Zach Braff, when Braff used the title track on 'Lebanese Blonde (1998) on the soundtrack of his film Garden State. This resulted in boosted sales for the group after the film's release.
