Grown Backwards

Lead Performer: David Byrne; Producer (group): Nonesuch; Status: In Season

Byrne has always been partial to the musical breezes of the Brazilian tropicalia movement, but what once appeared to be a stylistic tic now seems to be a permanent passion. And we’re all the better for it. Byrne’s affectless tenor is a perfect match for the delicate bob-and-weave grooves on this CD, his arch lyrics a sharp tool for playful misdirection. Dance, think, smile.
