David Byrne has a talent for surprise, whether with Talking Heads or on his own. I had the pleasure of seeing him with the Tosca strings for a taping of Austin City Limits and it was incredible. His latest project, Here Lies Love, is a collaboration with Fatboy Slim to tell the story of Imelda Marcos. Yes, a concept album about the first lady of the Philippines with appearances by Santigold, Tori Amos, Steve Earle and Cyndi Lauper. It works. I've always sort of liked the 365/412 despite its weirdness, too, but LuckyChuck disagrees.
