In the newest clip from last year’s amazing Strange Mercy St. Vincent’s Annie Clark is an oversized museum piece who wants to break free. Then it all falls apart
Memorial Day weekend brings the Sasquatch Festival to The Gorge outside of Seattle. Jack White, Bon Iver, Girl Talk, Tenacious D, The Shins, Kurt Vile and lots more.
Around this time each year we have the ask, has the whole world gone list crazy? And yes, we have, and ours go to eleven. Here’s our favorites this year.
Annie Clark and company show why their fan base keeps growing: pop sensibilities have morphed into something deeper. Shot at Shangri-La Studios in Brooklyn. It’s a great clip.
This Week: St. Vincent’s third and most approachable album yet; Girls’ second release is heavy-hearted but even better than their last; Neon Indian expands his 80s crush; Das Racist’s first studio effort is smart, though they can still annoy; Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor and Twin Shadow’s George Lewis Jr. impress as CANT.
Quirky Annie Clark, with her beautiful voice and matching face has a bit of a rough go after being kidnapped and forced into domesticity. It’s the first clip from the upcoming Strange Mercy, due out in September.
