CD: They Might Be Giants – Join Us

Wonderfully eclectic pop from this dynamic duo

They Might Be Giants: a glorious pick'n'mix selection of summer pop from the oddball veterans

When They Might Be Giants first appeared in the 1980s it became rock critic shorthand to describe them as bouncy, bushy-tailed pop oddballs. What is amazing is that nearly three decades on that description still applies perfectly to the fiftysomething whipsmart duo of John Linnell and John Flansburgh. On Join Us they never seem jaded or cynical or going through the motions, just joyous and delightful and as bouncy as ever.
