St Vincent – Actor Out of Work

by MV


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.
