David Byrne & Brian Eno - Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

None August 28th, 2008


Two pioneering rock heavyweights' Talking Heads founder David Byrne and producer, musician and ambient aesthetician Brian Eno' have again collaborated in "Everything That Happens Will Happen Today," a bounding compendium of interesting and enjoyable songs.

Byrne and Eno collaborated previously for "My Life in the Bush of Ghosts," the seemingly important but largely unlistenable 1981 album.

"Everything" is a lot of things. The folksy "My Big Nurse" is appealing, with steady guitar strumming and harmonic background atmosphere. Things get wonderfully weird on "I Feel My Stuff," which has a falsetto Byrne echoing above undulating electronic beats and melodic meanderings.

The title song is accessible and just morose enough, with a gospel shimmer and a slight tremble in Byrne's voice. It's on songs like this that Eno's added ambience and electronic tremolo is most effective, providing a cinematic underscore and character to songs that have recognizable features, but unidentifiable details.
