Hello Radio: The Songs of They Might Be Giants
by Various Artists
Released: Jul 2006
Label: Bar/None Records
Alternative rock pays long overdue tribute to this idiosyncratic but remarkable '80s/'90s phenomenon. On the surface, the music of They Might Be Giants may have seemed (and been) whimsical, but there was always more going on underneath, in the jam-packed arrangements and meticulously constructed lyrics. Frank Black, the Wrens, OK Go and more deliver imaginative takes on TMBG's hits and stylistic triumphs, all delivered without singer John Linnell's ultra nasal, nerd king delivery.
