I Wish (Bundle of Contradictions) - Forro in the Dark with David Byrne

-
Legbamel Not-Pop

Do you know what's cool? Famous musicians finding obscure bands and recording with them. And so I bring to you more Forro in the Dark with David Byrne because I think it's cool.

I Wish is typical Byrne fare: a straight-forward yearning for love in unexpected language. Mr. Byrne himself is the titular Bundle of Contradictions wishing for someone to love him.

And then you get forró in the background, a talented bunch of Brazilian ex-patriots that play great music on their own. Add the two together and you get an album I can't stop playing, in part because of I Wish (Bundle of Contradictions). Lest you think it's all David Byrne, Bebel Gilberto and Miho Hatori appear on the album as well.
