St. Vincent - "Year Of The Tiger" Live For 4AD

Enduring roster champion 4AD has done well to create a strong brand with high production standards out of their in-house live video series. In a world of meaningless promotional content, these 4AD Sessions are generally considered, visually unique, stylish affairs. Today the Sessions meet their match in St. Vincent, who is herself all of those things in addition to wielding the accomplished LP Strange Mercy and, here, its swagger-fueled/grooved-out closer, “Year Of The Tiger.” I’m making a rough count of this being a five-camera shoot which is $$$ not including the band’s debonair hair/wardrobe budget (or donations). It’s good to be (playing for) St. Vincent.

St. Ylish.

UPDATE: Here’s the entire session:

Track list:
01 “Chloe In The Afternoon”
02 “Surgeon

  1. The Chorus = “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door”.

    I really need to buy Strange Mercy.

  2. This is perhaps my least favorite song on her new album, yet I’ve still watched this video probably five time today. Great album, and Annie is just so pleasant to watch. Her guitar work on “Surgeon” in the longer video is just unreal.

  3. ughhhhh it makes me so happy to watch annie clark play guitar that i get physically unsettled. you know how a kid gets when something is embarrassing them, but making them giddy at the same time? rocking from side to side, wringing of hands, looking away a lot….
    yeah. annie clark does that to me.
