St. Vincent – St. Vincent (Republic/Loma Vista)

St. Vincent – St. Vincent (Republic/Loma Vista)

Self-titled albums, when they’re not a debut, often seem to have an extra air of importance to them, the suggestion of a reintroduction. It’s exciting then that St. Vincent finds Annie Clark at her most unhinged and musically ambitious … also throw in catchiest, funniest, and provocative, too. Most of this album moves with an easy strut; Clarke chooses the strangest possible palette of sound and crafts an album of her most satisfying songs yet. St. Vincent is a perfect reminder that experimental music and pop music don’t have to be mutually exclusive. –Miles [LISTEN]
