Admittedly I have not listened to Krautrock. I've listened to a little shoegaze. I like Lush! But I can tell what that woman is singing. Here, not so much...

I don't get why indie blogs are all about celebrating music they rightly admit "I have no idea what she's saying most of the time". Are indie musicians becoming so obsessed with trying to remain in their insular world, that everything has to be unintelligible now? It's like the more mainstream "indie" gets the more garbled the vocals becomes on every fucking song. If you can actually sing, we should be able to fucking hear it.

They're simply feelings she has. She never referenced any direct interview/communication with the band other than from afar. She BELIEVES they're are authentic, but that's not an intellectual argument.

It's not Deconstructing because nothing is being deconstructed (in any sense of that word). And it's barely about the music itself. This article is about the perception of the artists themselves, but instead of "deconstructing" that, she's just saying "I know people don't like them, but I do." I think it's kind of nice that she's not being a hater, but this segment should just be called "This is how I feel about ____".

I think that's very well said. Now I'm sure someone will turn it into a new genre.

What do you know about a follow-up Ramona Falls album? I've been dying for any sort of news. Thanks for the heads up about Laura, really dig her a lot.

My birthday is on Saturday, and so far in the past week I've seen St. Vincent, met Todd Haynes, been wasted already, and now the effin Stone Roses are getting back together. BEST BIRTHDAY WEEK EVER!

First of all, IT'S BULLSHIT for someone to reply to every single negative comment about a band by exclaiming you're not allowed to dislike something because you're not in a band. So unless everyone agrees with you we're not allowed to have an opinion? Your comments would be awesome if they weren't so ridiculously condescending and self-righteous. Second of all, seeing as how every Coldplay post on here always gets the most comments, COLDPLAY HAS WON.

September 5, 2011 on Premature Evaluation: St. Vincent Strange Mercy
While the comment about "horror movie notion of something appearing as totally pleasant" is an awesome way to describe her music, I think that the opposite side to that is the artificiality that Annie shows with her characters (on Actor/in her videos). I don't think that means she's lacking any heart or real emotion, I think it's just how sees human interaction. For me, it makes her music all the more visceral for it because she is very much trying to get beyond the appearance something; to whatever is lurking deep down. My Brightest Diamond and Bjork do the same thing. I think she's just fascinated by the roles people play, and the expectations of those roles, which to in her mind seems to cause an almost violent reaction in us (in my opinion anyway), though the characters seem to lack the will to do anything. Like, everyone is always at someone's mercy. So combining this sense of an almost complete complacency with a violent reactionary side, I think you've got something very strange indeed.
