St. Vincent

    Newer Older

    I was a huge fan of Actor and have been following closely the second release. So..."Cruel"

    I really like the video..but here's the thing, it's missing some of the guitar magic imo. Too much keyboard, not enough guitar parts..I hope the rest of the album brings it back to top Annie Clark form, though.

    You can watch the video (in which Annie Clark is buried by her family and seems even more Miranda July ish here: stereogum.com/789451/st-vincent-cruel-video/video/)

    NPR just put up the whole album to be listened to for a limited time on First Listen here:

      Awesome white tones!
      She's gorgeous... I'm definitely in love with her voice.

      New album, beginning next week!! I saw her live, opening for Grizzly Bear and it was just HORRIBLE, I hate to say it, I was expecting her with a band, saw some excellent footage of her performing with a band (on Pitchfork), but she showed up all by herself with what sounded like an out of tune and/or broken guitar and some kind of drumcomputer!! in a huge (sold out) club - over 3500 people (the people in Grizzly Bear themselves were kinda shocked that they moved their gig to such a big venue); anyways Mrs. St. Vincent live : horrible experience. But I'm willing to give her a second chance, 'cause I love both of the albums. GB on the other hand: utter brilliance!!

      She has always been AMAZING live when I've seen her and I've seen her many many times. However, I do not love the new album. I have listened to it more recently and while some of the tracks are great, there are many I cannot stand or that are ruined completely and it is sad.

      Oops, the new album isn't all that good? Better have a listen, I was gonna buy it blindly on monday morning through iTunes. Damn; I was looking forward to that new album.

      I really like the blue here and especially how it makes her lips stand out (in an oddly quiet way).

      I'm getting a 'Graham Coxon plays XTC' vibe from the way she plays guitar in the new album (thanks for the link!)... which is a good thing for me. :)

      Pitchfork just gave the new album a 9.0, best new music;

    12. superchunk1968 [deleted] 42 months ago | reply

      Bought the album yesterday on iTunes, after having read the review on Pitchfork and I'm sold; it is different from the 2 previous albums, for sure, but really excellent I think and really cool lyrics too; she's cool; have you heard/seen her cover BigBlack? That girl knows what she's talking about.

      Annie Clark photos are always so dainty, this is a great St. Vincent shredding rock photo. Isn't that new album incredible? I've been listening to it heavily over the new Wilco, which may be the greatest compliment I've ever handed out. Can't wait to see her at Metro, fingers crossed I can photograph (& get a shot half as good as this one)
