St. Vincent took the Pop Group’s “She Is Beyond Good And Evil,” a number she’s been playing out for a little while, to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night, which is probably the closest the Pop Group will ever get to network television.

St. Vincent – “Year Of The Tiger” Live Video

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.

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.” 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 AndMore »

Annie Clark, better known to most of us as St. Vincent, has composed a piece called “Proven Badlands” for the orchestral ensemble yMusic.

Premature Evaluation: St. Vincent Strange Mercy

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). Her… 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 »
