St Vincent – Actor Out of Work
This is pretty cool. It’s the lead track from the second album on 4AD from St Vincent, AKA Annie Clark. The vocals may be be a bit lacking, but they’re pleasant enough, and they’re surrounded by so much interesting noise that you barely notice them. It reminds me of a slightly darker take on The Bird and the Bee, or an updated, noise-enhanced Breeders. Alt-pop more than pop maybe, but enchanting nonetheless.
