“Strange Overtones” by David Byrne and Brian Eno

This track from their second collaboration, 2008’s Everything that Happens Will Happen Today truly shows both artists in their best possible light. Byrne’s airy vocals dance over the pulsating rhythms brought by Eno. It may be more conventional that what one would expect from these two– who’ve made a career out of pushing boundaries– but “Strange Overtones” is one of the better and more immediate songs the two have released.
