Download David Byrne & St. Vincent’s Brass Tactics EP

Last year, David Byrne & St. Vincent released Love This Giant, which they followed with a tour of North America and Australia. Now, they’re getting ready to hit the road again — a jaunt that will take them across both North America and Europe — and to whet appetites, they’re offering up a free EP, Brass Tactics, which features (per Byrne): “one song that didn’t make it on the record (a waltz featuring some lovely glass harmonica), a couple of energized remixes of some of the album tunes, and two live tracks of the sort of more familiar material we do in the set.” The new song is called “Cissus,” the remixes are “I Should Watch TV” (M. Stine Remix) and “Lightning” (Kent Rockafeller Remix), and the live tracks, recorded on the first tour, are re-workings of St. Vincent’s “Marrow” and the Talking Heads’ “Road To Nowhere.” You can download the whole thing below, in exchange for an email address.
