David Byrne – Hanging Upside Down

Taken from the album ‘Uh Oh’ (iTunes)

#Friday. A few short listens to ‘Who’ by David Byrne & St. Vincent from the ‘Love This Giant’ collaboration (re which grab a free download of ‘Who’ via the link here), and we could not stop ourselves from recalling ‘Uh Oh’ from the vaults for the god-knows-how-many-eth time once again. One of the least weird tracks on a great big weird pop record that still sounds utterly idiosyncratic 20 years down the line, ‘Hanging Upside Down’ was never our favourite tune from the record but it’s still quite excellent. And oddly enough we’re not feeling that weird right now, so it seems to fit the bill pretty well.

Out now on 4AD

Stan says: #Wednesday. PC seems to be in love with Annie Clark – and with good reason. This version was recorded live in session on WNYC’s Soundcheck earlier this month and is one of the standout tracks from her new album. Buy it direct from 4AD here.
