St. Vincent

Earlier this year, St. Vincent’s Annie Clark earned some serious respect from skeptics and converts alike with her absolutely ferocious fire-eyed cover of Big Black’s “Kerosene.” At a recent New York show, she pulled out another bloodthirsty postpunk cover, doing an all-solo version of the Pop Group’s wiry itch-funk classic “She Is Beyond Good And Evil.”

And in other news, St. Vincent stopped by KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic this morning, and we’ve got some great photos from Andrew Youssef. Click above for the photos, and below to grab the Pop Group cover and watch the video.

  1. Very nice. Strange Mercy is my favorite album of the year, but after hearing her rock out on “Kerosene” (and now this cover), I can’t help but fantasize about what a pure rock St. Vincent album would sound like. I’m hearing a modern Doolittle in my head and it’s amazing.

  2. there’s definitely a bass playing as well, or a keyboard playing a bass part. she’s covering the noisy guitar pretty damn well, though.

  3. She does do a nice job on the noisy guitar bits but for the vocals she seems to be taking it too seriously. It’s an exuberant song — loosen up and have some fun with it! Otherwise you just sound like a Sinead O’Connor impersonator emulating Polly Harvey.
