This week David Byrne and Brian Eno released something for the first time in 30 years, the album is called “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today” and the last song posted “The River” is from it. I just picked it up online and pretty much made yesterday a whole day of Byrne + Eno and wanted to share a few tracks from The Catherine Wheel score. As for the new record, i found a lot more straight forward and vocal which is great but i personally wanted more rhythmic sounds accompanying each track since they are both genius in my opinion when it comes to percussion.

Also, If you haven’t seen this already, David Byrne made an organ that sits in the middle of an abandon building that triggers parts of the building to make a sound, it’s really interesting, sadly it’s not too far from me and all my trips and plans to make it out always fall thru, I might just go by myself.
