''"Since their formation in December 2002, Tally Hall have reached what the 'Michigan Daily' calls "iconic status" in Ann Arbor, playing to sold-out crowds of enthusiastic followers. Tally Hall first gained national attention when keyboardist Andrew Horowitz won the 2004 John Lennon Scholarship Competition, presented by Yoko Ono and BMI, for writing "Good Day." Since then, with the support of the uber-popular www.albinoblacksheep.com, Tally Hall's music and related videos have attracted an unprecedented amount of Internet attention. The band's debut studio album, Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, was released nationwide in November 2005 on the Quack!Music label. The fellows from Tally Hall recently shared with us their favorite music. Read on to find out what each of them believes is the music you should hear."''
