Unbeknownst to all, David Byrne and St. Vincent had a musical lovechild in Austin, Texas, that was raised on 80s music but can't hide the fact that she grew up in the aughts. That baby was named Calliope Musicals. At least I think that's the lineage. Don't ask me to provide any documentation to confirm. While you might shake your head in confusion regarding that description after hearing the first song or two, soon enough you'll be nodding. Unless of course you're Bulgarian. Then that nod will become a shake. Crazy Bulgarians. The ambiguously illustrative name of the album in turn aptly sums up the sounds: Color/Sweat. Just listen for yourself, and the familial truth of the one named after a Greek goddess shall in time be revealed.
