David Byrne & St. Vincent
"Love This Giant" (Vinyl)

I'm not sure how a label promotes a project like this:
Former Talking Heads frontman and indie songstress record album with every spare brass player they can find.

I don't really care.  I love both the Talking Heads and St. Vincent, so this was a pretty easy sell.
The opening track (and lead-off single) "Who" is a microcosm of what I expected: great production, quirky arrangements and Byrne's distinctive vocal harmonies.

The rest of the album doesn't feel quite as clearly organized, but I have a feeling if I just listen to this one for a while I'll fall in love.
