Brian Eno & David Byrne – Everything That Happens Will Happen Today

30 06 2010

Listened: Tuesday June 29

Like The Eraser, when I heard Everything That Happens for the first time it sounded very relevant and modern. It’s a rock-gospel album for the digital age. I also love the Sims-esque artwork. It fits in well with the theme of “life in the time of digital”.

Odd then when David Byrne sings “This groove is out of fashion, These beats are 20 years old” on Strange Overtones. Famously, some of Brian Eno’s music for this album is actually that old, but at this point, when everyone is revisiting 80s and even 90s culture already, in the scheme of things does a “20 years ago” even exist?
