Nanobots by They Might Be Giants
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Idlewild Recordings
Love TMGB, but find yourself actually preferring their looser, stranger, wittier children's albums lately? Behold: Nanobots is their best "adult" work in ages. The drone-haunted "Black Ops" and wayward stalker anthem "Call You Mom" perfectly balance sonic whimsy and lyrical menace, but it's the super-short goofs here -- revelations like "Hive Mind" and "Decision Makers" get in and get out in 15 seconds or less -- that hail back to the cracked pop duo's "Fingertips"-style glory years. Don't worry, your kids will dig it too, even the song called "You're on Fire."
