    Video: "The Mesopotamians" - They Might Be Giants

    They Might Be Giants' latest CD, the very entertaining The Else, isn't always kid-friendly -- it's not quite as goofy overall as their earlier work, almost as if they're cleaving a little bit between their kids' stuff and adult stuff. The album closer, "The Mesopotamians," is a bubbly tale of some ancients hitting the road as a band. Think of it as the Geico cavemen meet Gorillaz. Think of it as an early world history lesson (who was Hammurabi again?)

    Or, if you don't want to just think about it, head on over to Stereogum, where they've got the new video here. The animation is pretty sweet. It's mostly OK for older kids -- there is some not-too-bad stylized violence and one PG-rated curse word.
