They Might Be Giants
"New York duo John Flansburgh and John Linnell have been making irreverent ironic alt-rock for nearly three decades, spawning imitators like Weezer and Ben Folds Five… it’s clear they have lost none of their playful individuality."
"The geek-rock likes of Weezer and Death Cab for Cutie owe a debt to this multimillion-selling Brooklyn duo, purveyors or smark-alecky pop tunes."
"The quirky alt.pop duo are currently enjoying a hipster-led popularity resurgence"
"They Might Be Giants helped write the manual for American geek-rock"
"The geeky duo are hilarious and better at rocking out than cooler groups. Dive in and explore a unique, weirdly moving world"
