St. Vincent – “Cheerleader” Video

The video for St. Vincent's Strange Mercy track "Cheerleader" opens with a giant Annie Clark laying prone on an art-museum floor, looking like a Damien Hirst shark.

St. Vincent Covers The Pop Group, Plays KCRW

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."

Apparently, the appeal of a girl that looks an American Doll who also happens to create manic, spastic riffs is not lost on the people. Annie Clark's St. Vincent project has been universally admired and rhapsodized over ever since she sprung from Sufjan's Stevens' band (which also serves as some kind of songwriting academy). More »

St. Vincent Brings “Cruel” To Letterman

Last night St. Vincent took "Cruel" (which recently got a creepy, fun video) to Letterman's stage. Though she's only been playing with the new band for a minute, they sound pretty sharp. I still have nothing bad to say about St. Vincent. More »

St. Vincent – “Cruel” Video

St. Vincent's forthcoming Strange Mercy is one of the most-anticipated releases of that fall; since totally owning some Big Black covers at the Our Band Could Be Your Life tribute concert, her follow-up to 2009's Actor has put the increasingly edgy project on many tastemakers' radars.
