David Byrne and St. Vincent’s 2012 CD, “Love This Giant,” is the album that won’t quit. It gave Byrne his first top-30 hit since his Talking Heads days, and the 2012 tour went so well that they’re taking the music out on the road again this summer. Backed by a punchy, slithering, pulsating brass band, the duo blends herky-jerky funk, heady lyrics and techno touches with irresistible results.
