John Linnell on The Else and No!

In the break before TMBG's upcoming Disney tour dates, LiveDaily has an interview with John Linnell. Linnell speaks about how they worked with the Dust Bros. on The Else and where he thinks that album stands in their catalog, saying:
I think "The Else" was a spike in popularity for us. That partly represented people who hadn't been paying attention to us, who [hadn't taken] notice, and there's probably some new fans who got interested in [us at] that point and maybe felt like it was better than the last couple They Might Be Giants records.

He also gives a good summary of how their first children's album, No!, came about, his thoughts on the Disney Music Block Party Tour, and going back to the old Village Gate.
