No joke, THE David Byrne is broadcasting on DavidByrne.com a playlist of what he's listening to while he's on tour in Europe. Here is his statement:
"We're touring Europe for the month of April, and as we make our way from town to town, sometimes we're given CDs — by artists, labels or friends. There are some tunes in this month's playlist that won't be out for a couple of months! Sometimes we actually have time to stop into an indie shop and see what the staff recommends. Sometimes I read an online review of someone's new CD and might download all or part of it. Without my home & office CDs to pull from, I forgo a theme for a bit of a what's up hodgepodge."
It's pretty rad. It features the likes of Animal Collective, Bon Iver, St. Vincent, Fever Ray and Dirty Projectors. You know, all of my favorite bands.
