SongoftheDay: BRING ME YOUR LOVES by ST. VINCENT
Annie Clark, better known as St. Vincent, performs with an enigmatic charm. Her live show is calculated; choreographed to create a dream-like, immersive, artistic experience for the audience. Her self-titled album is so solid and though her art-pop-rock style is a bit of a rarity in my personal catalogue, such is her pull. While I tend towards heavily distorted guitars, Annie’s highly skillful playing erupts through a cacophony of digital and ethereal effects that leave me fucking delighted. Cutting her teeth in jazz, her career has had many different faces and has taken her to the outermost expanding corners of her own creativity, and that of others. She is the real deal.
(This week’s SongoftheDay segments are being guest-curated by Tracy A. of Cross Dog. Not only is Tracy a force to be reckoned with on stage, her political views are equally as fierce, and can be felt in the passion of her lyrics. We are super stoked to have her guest curate some music celebrating the contributions of many of the most iconic women in music. To learn more about Tracy A. and her great band Cross Dog, click here.)
