A Talking Heads tribute, Naïve Melodies, plays Silver Bullet Thursday this week in the Crystal Bay Casino Crown Room. “Naïve Melodies is a three-piece dance machine that sounds like a six- or even seven-piece band,” said lead vocalist Matt Engel. The group has a mastery and respect for the integrity of the music, and sometimes features an interpretation thereof. Sets are designed to interweave older and newer Talking Heads songs with blends of three- part harmonies, synthesizers and a heavy dance groove. Engel also plays bass, bass synth and keyboard. Harry Hulsizer plays drums and percussion and Johnny Fiya plays guitar. The three got together in early 2011 and found a common love for the music of the Talking Heads as well as a natural chemistry playing together, and so they went for it. The band is from Arcata, California.
