As the first fruit from David Byrne & Fatboy slims forthcoming concept album based around Imelda Marcos featuring a whole host of female vocalists along the way, “Here Lies Love” is also the first track from that 2 CD affair so it has something to prove. Well, its bizarre, opening with strings that sound like they’re coming from a new Avalanches album before dropping down into club beats and parps and then back into strings and acoustic guitar as Florence kicks it like shes in a family musical. Eventually coming to a slightly awkward mix of both of them. At 4:07 it even becomes the soundtrack for a Wii menu. Jesus
