David Byrne is rocking my radio world

Posted by in Personal Travails

Svetla and I have been diligently scrubbing and sorting out our newly-floored flat for the past four days, with some last-minute Cinema Politica schedule and finance stuff. While we’ve been keeping uber-busy, we have been listening to the ten volume set that Svetla has called Hotel Costes, as well as the FABULOUS line-up playing at radiodavidbyrne.com. You can listen directly from the site or through iTunes, and it is sure to get your feet moving and remind you that summer is still happening. The all-African set is astounding and reinforces my longheld opinion of Talking Heads frontman David Byrne: he not only makes incredible music, he has great taste in music too. Among the tracks on the current playlist is “” from the soundtrack to the excellent documentary, We Are Together, about an orphan’s quire in South Africa (pictured above).
