They Might Be Giants – “Electronic Istanbul (Not Constantinople)” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Nerd-rock kings They Might Be Giants have a new rarities album called Album Raises New And Troubling Questions out, and one of its tracks is a synthed-up version of their iconic Flood single “Istanbul (Not Constantinople),” a song that still remains firmly lodged in the cerebral cortexes of so many of the kids who saw that one episode of Tiny Toon Adventures. The track also translates surprisingly well to its dancier new incarnation, and we get to see what happens when you hook a Speak & Spell up to a drum machine. The band’s own John Flansburgh directs. Watch it below.
Album Raises New And Troubling Questions is out now on Idlewild.
