Similar to Swedish singer/songwriter Jens Lekman (see here), nerd-rock darlings They Might Be Giants are releasing 52 songs this year: By rebooting their infamous Dial-A-Song project, they are feeding our hungry ears with the latest from the Giants-factory. Call in at the toll free number at (844) 387-6962 as well as via the web at, to get the scoop on the latest news from the our favorite musical nerds.

However, their weekly song release can be followed on Slate’s weekly podcast “The Gist.” This weeks tune is called “Erase,” and brings back the simple yet so smart college rock we know the Giants for. Brilliantly comical lyrics paired with the shredding that is the duo’s guitar work brings back memories, and if you’re not head banging by the time the chorus hits, you’re definitely either deaf or soulless.
