* Have you seen the video of their Letterman appearance?
** These guys have been On-The-Go mix regulars of late, and old passion first rekindled by NOT seeing the Loser's Lounge Talking Heads show last October... then, YES, seeing David Byrne dining at Waverly Inn two weeks ago, then reading that long article about him right after that in the Times, then buying tickets to his February 3 Carnegie Hall concert.
*** I heard this on MTV2 one morning recently and it was stuck in my head all day. Sometimes things are popular for a good reason.
**** So far the new Shins disc hasn't really grabbed me... except for this song, the opening track, which perhaps set my expectations too high for what follows.
