David Byrne & St. Vincent and a big brass band

So, I have to say that when I saw this performance on Fallon and even later when I listened to Love This Giant in its entirety I was a little zzzzzzzzz about the whole thing. In fact, I had just gotten to the end of my usual four listens when I put the record on for a run, and god damn, it is such a good exercise record. I mean, it's so rhythmic and in the most unexpected ways, like I guarantee that one foot will be lifting up on the horn beats, the other one on vocal lines. It's all very staccato and pointillist, like the songs are made up of bits of confetti, and kinda cool. At least that's what I thought yesterday. I might change my mind again.
