MP3: David Byrne & St. Vincent – “Who”

June 17, 2012 2 comments

WHAT??? I know I’ve been off the radar but this!! As maybe a few of you know, Talking Heads are a lifelong favorite of mine. Pretty appropriate that I happened to come across this gift from the music god of collaborations on Father’s Day. I grew up listening to the Talking Heads and I, without question, inherited my strange taste in music from my dad, his is probably stranger. So he taught me Talking Heads and I introduced him to Annie Clark, full circle up in this.

David Byrne is legendary. St. Vincent is an angel and she can do no wrong in my ears, also I hear she’s a real boss in concert. St. Vincent and David Byrne go together. They’ve been working on their collaboration album titled, Love This Giant since 2009 and “Who” is the first preview, out on September 11th. It’s very possible that David and Annie are soul mates. I don’t think I need to restate my love for horns, but okay I just did anyways so this track was for me from the beginning. “Who” goes beyond genres, just hit play. See you all in a month!
