St. Vincent and David Byrne

Love This Giant, the debut collaboration between Dallas-bred guitarist Annie Clark (St. Vincent) and NYC icon David Byrne, could have gone totally outre, considering both of their more left-leaning musical paths, but they meet somewhere in the middle. The duo trades vocals with ease, Clark's heavenly wisp picking up where Byrne's hiccup-y heave leaves off, and their axe fight is propelled by the addition of a pretty aggressive horn section, making for an interesting electro-pop-funk cocktail, one that has both their fingerprints on it, but comes off completely new.
