The May-to-December album collaboration is far more interesting than the May-to-December romance. Though, like the latter, the former tends to spawn something unexpected and thought-provoking and not necessarily long-lasting. Think Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. David Byrne and St. Vincent (the stage name of Annie Clark) met at an '09 Radio City Music Hall benefit concert and then again at a Björk and Dirty Projectors collaboration concert. A concert organizer suggested St. Vincent and the Talking Heads frontman try something similar. And the smart/twitchy/poppy Love This Giant
was born. Just a couple of weeks ago, the pair also released the Brass Tactics EP
. They play the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium on Saturday, June 15. 8 p.m. $58.75-$71.60. http://www.ticketmaster.com. Photo by Andreas Laszlo Konrath
