Weekend Reading: Talking Heads

I don't get The New Yorker (I know, what a philistine...) so I was unaware of this piece on the band Talking Heads from mid-June, but I discovered it yesterday while catching up on the magazine's Culture Desk blog.

It's longish but definitely worth reading, and when you've finished there is a high probability that "This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)"—you know, the one that starts with that flutelike sound—will be lodged in your brain for a while. (And if you want to get a head start, here's the music video.)
