St. Vincent's "Cheerleader"

A new video from the incomparable St. Vincent: This is the closest to anthemic that Annie Clark ever gets and that makes it too relatively straightforward for her. What is here is good if there were something else, less direct also going on. The song feels half done, more like a traditional pop song than [Read More...]

Be Careful About Loving Women Too Much Lest Other Guys Think You're Gay

When Pitchfork‘s Chris Dahlen wrote a tribute to Liz Phair’s landmark indie masterpiece Exile in Guyville as a review of its 15th anniversary rerelease in 2008, he led with this paragraph: You break all kinds of unwritten rules when you’re a guy who admires a girl.

And while we’re sharing St. Vincent videos, here’s a [Read More...]

The Alluring Annie Clark

The former member of Polyphonic Spree and back up singer to Sufjan Stevens, Annie Clark goes by “St. Vincent” for her own albums and is pretty unconventionally awesome.  Here she is live—both St. Vincent – “Now Now” from scheduletwo on Vimeo. and then St. Vincent “The Strangers” from Lake Fever Sessions on Vimeo.
