  • Those acquainted with They Might Be Giants' witty brand of quirky pop are already familiar with the band's penchant for literate, surreal wordplay and irresistible melodic hooks. For these fans, INDESTRUCTIBLE OBJECT (named after a Man Ray sculpture) reconfirms high opinions, and, for the uninitiated, this five-song EP offers a winnowed-down sampler of the duo's charms (though the full-length FLOOD and the DIAL-A-SONG anthology are excellent places to start).
  • The opener, "Am I Awake?," is the strongest track--a lyrically subtle tune that paints a picture of existential disorientation over a Pet Shop Boys-esque electro-pulse. In addition to a spare cover of the Beach Boys' "Caroline, No," "Ant" is a fun allegory about deferred dreams that builds to a raucous conclusion, and "Memo to Human Resources," a tale about a potential suicide, demonstrates John Flansburgh and John Linnell's facility with point-of-view song narratives. As a concise between-album offering, INDESTRUCTIBLE OBJECT finds the Johns staying true to their legacy of making smart, sing-along music.
