Host Madeleine Brand talks to David Byrne, formerly of the group Talking Heads, about two of his recent projects. One, Cuisine Non-Stop, is a compilation album of French music that reflects that blends the traditional chanson style with hip-hop, Algerian, and electronic music. The other, The Only Blip Hop Record You Will Ever Need, Volume One, features a spare and electronic musical style called blip hop.
