New St. Vincent Video – “Marrow”

Old folks may be immune to the charms of an Annie Clark closeup, but for everyone else there’s this video for “Marrow” in which St. Vincent makes sure to recreate her album covers a lot during a long walk along a dusty road where we witness her pied-piper like effect on the panoply of humanity she passes. The action begins at a makeshift grave and Annie, ever the head turner, strolls past a broken down family, road workers, thugs, cops, and live stock, all of whom are powerless to resist her magnetic pull. And her ability to freeze-frame and rotate the world with the sheer force of her doe-eyed gaze. So much face.
Still hear Dave Matthews Band in the machine gun sax on the hook. Actor is out. Annie’s going on tour with Andrew Bird, here’s a video performance of them together that teases that trek:
