More from the brain of Byrne
Damn it, that David Bryne knows how to put a playlist together..
This month’s playlist could be considered eclectic pop music. It contains stuff ranging from the 60s to recordings that are not available yet. The overarching theme might be hooks and melody. There’re a few songs that survive mainly on groove, but not many in this batch. I love the segue from Beck to Baris Manço, the 70s Turkish psychedelic artist — you can hardly tell the difference until the voice comes in. Likewise Snoop Dog and Geggy Tah. Pop music sure can do some wonderful jump cuts.
