David Byrne and St. Vincent
This is a generational genius summit of the first order. Byrne and 29 year-old art-pop wunderkind Annie Clark both share a love of wiry tunefulness and worldly grooves. But the casual chemistry they display on the first song they've released from Love This Giant, their collaborative album due this fall, is still kind of shocking; "Who" has a bit of early Talking Heads' airy minimalism, sharpened by smartly collaged horns, chain-gang vocal samples and noise-knot guitar shots. And Clark is a hell of a high-IQ hook girl.
