Video: St. Vincent and David Byrne play "I Should Watch TV" on "The Late Show with David Letterman"

by Brandy McDonnell Published: January 29, 2013

As previously reported, Tulsa native St. Vincent and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Byrne were the musical guests Monday night on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”

Joined by a bevy of brass-wielding musicians, they performed an excellent rendition of “I Should Watch TV” from their 2012 collaborative album “Love This Giant.”

“Love This Giant” was No. 3 on my list of 2012′s top 10 albums with Oklahoma ties. Here’s what I had to say about it:

We already knew that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer best known for fronting the Talking Heads and the Tulsa-born singer/songwriter/guitarist also known as Annie Clark were individually capable of creating artful pop-rock. But who knew the divergent experimentalists would make such cohesive collaborators, too? Their deliciously brassy duet album goes down like the musical version of a black and tan, with a full serving of Byrne’s coolly creative world music wanderings and a full serving of St. Vincent’s darkly cerebral guitar rock layered in perfect balance. And all those intricate horns are like the tasty foam topping this heady sonic brew.

It’s still true, as the intriguing duo affirmed on Letterman.
