Nanobots – They Might Be Giants (IdleWild)

That’s right. 25 tracks. TMBG make the most of this, their sixteenth album.  They’re back to making adult alternative music with their characteristic goofiness, but the silliness of their music seems to have been amplified by their time with children’s music.  Their sound is great and original, as always; despite celebrating their 31st year together, TMBG comes through with another fantastic and very new album.  It holds that characteristic 90’s alt sound (‘Circular Karate Chop’), but simultaneously reflects the recent trend toward indie and folk music (‘Black Ops’).  9 of this album’s 25 songs are small clips under 1 minute in length.
