New St. Vincent – “The Strangers”

New St. Vincent – “The Strangers”

Soon after we got a closeup of St. Vincent’s new album, videos of Annie going one-woman-band style on the new material began trickling out from her performance at Noise Pop. That was promising, but pretend you didn’t see it and take this lead MP3: She’s old hat at transmitting her shifty, knotty, orchestrated music live via guitars and triggering foot pedals, but crappy YouTubes don’t compare to hearing “The Strangers”‘s fairy tale woodwinds surrender to stomping fuzzpedal delirium (see 2:30) in studio form.
