This Must Be The Place (Talking Heads Cover)
Last week at Gathering of the Vibes, I had the pleasure of seeing Lotus perform a very unique set entitled “Talking Heads Deconstructed.” Throughout it they channeled their inner David Byrne, culminating in one of the most epic covers of “This Must Be The Place” I, and probably the world, have ever seen.
Such is the impetus to today’s throwback jam and a Soundcloud pilgrimage to find every good cover of the 1983 hit. Enter John Jagos. The Brooklyn-based producer’s — better known as Brothertiger — synth-heavy, chillwave cover of the iconic tune sounds like a DIY St. Lucia. Don’t be naive and give the melody a listen below.
