I found this song via the new "I heart Japan" post in DB's journal, http://www.davidbyrne.com It has links for donating to the Japanese relief efforts too, and a new Japanese music playlist.

Anyone catch DB sitting in with this band last week in NYC? Here's the studio recording:

Can't find the song!
Howdy-do? This is Peter McCalister, the FATHER. I'd like a hotel room,
please, with an extra-large bed, a TV, and one of those little
refrigerators that you have to open with a key. Credit card? You got it!

It's on ITunes now.

The album was reviewed today by NYT. Here's the part about "Eliza:"

"Yet oddities are tucked in everywhere, like ... the Bollywood tinge of "Eliza," which has David Byrne dropping by to sing lyrics he wrote. The melodies are slyly angular, leaping around far more than typical pop tunes, so the vocals are slotted into the counterpoint.". Not sure I'm following completely, but seems favorable.
