Pity the record store clerk who is given the job of filing Nasalrod's new 7-inch Steward into the appropriate section. The record contains four songs that are wholly different from one another, but somehow have cohesion. The first track, "Hype," has some Talking Heads quirk pushed by a lot of ferocious intensity. Track two, "Hello Ello," is a smile-inducing anthem that's capped by an ending fit for an interpretive dance—although what that dancer might be interpreting would be tough to pin down. On side two you'll find "What D'ya Say" and "Join," two tracks that also have plenty of danceability to them, in a David-Byrne-in-a-giant-suit kind of way. All together, Steward is a fantastic Nasalrod ride that must be heard to be understood. Well, if not understood, at least enjoyed thoroughly. ARIS WALES
