  • David Byrne and St Vincent – 'Love This Giant'

    Rating: 4/5
    By Danielle Goldstein

    If you can pull your gaze from the freaky deformities added to the faces of David Byrne and Annie Clark (aka St Vincent) on the cover, you’ll find you’re holding a rather fascinating record.

    Unsurprisingly, the pairing of Byrne with talented guitarist and singer Clark is inspired. Explosions of brass ring out between frenetic Talking Heads-esque rhythms, while Clark’s delicate vocals keep things from jarring. Brilliantly quirky and full of groove, this doesn’t sit still for a moment.
