Talking Heads - Little Creatures album FLAC

Mastered at Sterling Sound, New York. Made In Italy (on disc) Made in UK (on back inlay).

Little Creatures is the sixth studio album by American new wave band Talking Heads, released in June 1985. The album examines themes of Americana and incorporates elements of country music, with many of the songs featuring steel guitar. It was voted as the best album of the year in The Village Voice Pazz & Jop critics poll and is the band's biggest-selling studio album, with over two million copies sold in the US. The cover art was created by outsider artist Howard Finster, and was selected as album cover of the year by Rolling Stone magazine.

Having spent the early '80s in a giddy expansion of the sound and scale of their studio recordings and concerts, Talking Heads come full circle with this 1985 album, retracting to the core quartet and restoring a focus on David Byrne's knotty songs
