"Better Dig Two" suggests duality, which is appropriate: The Band Perry play with loud and soft dynamics on their new track for a mix of clang and twang. The family country band shifts from subdued hand claps and banjo finger-picking to explosive choruses flush with huge guitar crashes and Kimberly Perry's searing hot siren calls. It's a rugged sound for the siblings, but one they balance well with moments of delicate melody. "Better Dig Two" will be on the Band Perry's still-untitled second album, which is due next spring.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
