Xenia Rubinos' just-out debut album Magic Trix is so delightfully catchy and engagingly strange that we figured she'd be perfect for Undercover, and she proved us right. Along with drummer Marco Buccelli, she took Talking Heads' classic "Psycho Killer" and made it even more manic and expressive. David Byrne, wherever you are, hopefully this will excite you as much as it did us. Stick around for the drum-flange madness.
