The One Who Broke Your Heart
If there were a film to coincide with Love This Giant, it'd be something like a Disney movie made by and for philosophy PhD candidates. In other words, the collab between former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne and ethereal singer-songwriter St. Vincent is as cerebral, eccentric and fantastical as you'd hope. Musing on nature, space, time, matter, beauty and TV, the two trade vocals, her sweet, gossamer sighs an excellent foil for his commanding tremble. Big blasts of brass and funky rhythms underline every track, most vibrantly on "Weekend in the Dust" and "The One Who Broke Your Heart."
