Album Review: They Might Be Giants – ‘I Like Fun’

They Might Be Giants, “I Like Fun” (Lojinx)- The adjective “quirky” could almost have been coined specifically with They Might Be Giants  in mind, and  the Brooklyn duo continue  to mine a seemingly inexhaustible vein of  sonically adventurous  alternative rock as they unveil their 19th studio album, “I Like Fun.” John Linnell and John Flansburgh did enjoy a brief glimpse of the limelight when the infectious “Birdhouse In Your Soul” soared into the higher reaches of the singles charts on both sides of the Atlantic in 1989 but for the most part they seem to have been content to ply their trade in relative obscurity  despite turning out a string of excellent albums during the past three decades or so. “Let’s Get This Over With” and “An Insult to the Fact Checkers”  capture  TMBG at their  brilliant best.
