Review: Nanobots

Review: Nanobots

The album explores ideas such as setting insects free from a hospital and microscopic robots!


Nanobots is the sixteenth album by They Might be Giants. Matt Park gives us his verdict...

Their brand of oddball, alternative comedy rock is by no means getting old. It's just as funny and fresh as it ever was! Listening to Nanobots you have to wonder what goes through the collective imagination of the duo of John Flansburgh and John Linnell. At its most wayward, Nanobots explores ideas such as setting insects free from a hospital and microscopic robots. It's not all-off-the-wall sub-30-second songs though, as the more conventional songs explore loneliness and alienation, but of course in the usual Giants pastiche that could fool you into thinking they were written about puppies and rainbows if you weren't paying attention...

For fans of They Might Be Giants, this album will not be a stand-out classic that offers anything new, but it's a great place to start for newcomers to the band. Be sure to catch them on tour in November when they bring their live musical comedy to the UK with stops in Edinburgh, Belfast, Dublin, London and Manchester.
