St. Vincent and David Byrne have recorded an album called Love This Giant together. The pair have been working on music since 2009 when they were intially asked to collaborate on a track for charity. Rather than do just one track, they went the whole hog and the central theme of the record is the use of a brass band.
From the sound of first track – ‘Who’, it’s an inspired theme; both Byrne and Clark’s voices are suited to the brass instrumentation and Clark’s recent guitar work has echoed the sound of brass parps of late.
