St. Vincent Debuts New Tunes At NoisePop

When we posted St. Vincent’s Actor album art, a number of comments focused on whether or not it was misogynist to focus so much on Annie Clark’s appearance. True enough, a few folks were a bit overly excited in their descriptions — go outside and see the world, you. Then again, as kidacomputerok put it (albeit with more colorful sentences and phrases before and after this central thesis):

“[S]ince there’s ONLY a tracklisting and cover photo of her effervescent visage here and NOT MP3s of the actual songs, how the fuck are we supposed to comment on the music?”

Now we have music. Clark debuted a couple Actor tracks at San Francisco’s NoisePop festival this past Friday (2/27): Check out album opener “The Strangers” and shredder “Marrow.”

“The Strangers”
