St Vincent

St. Vincent, with horn section, gave a powerful performance on Letterman last night (6/24). In August she'll be part of the free Virgin Festival happening in Maryland. Tonight (6/25), she plays the Bell House in Brooklyn. "Limited tickets available at the door." Check out the Letterman video below...

The music isn't very good, but I'd probably bang her!

doubled tracked vocals?

sounds too perfect :/

doesn't sound double tracked at all actually, her voice breaks all the time when she sings so they wouldn'tve been doing a very good job if it were.

but A+++I love this shit

most likely it is budos.. they are managed by the same folks as St Vincent as a quick search of the net reveals

Awesome Annie! Can I call you Annie?

Thought this was the best song at her Webster show. Even better with more sax and backup singers.

now that letterman is married and can't touch the girls, his voice and mannerisms have gotten extra creepy. love it

i love this record, but elements of this performance do seem suspiciously perfect... the drums and vocals, in particular, do not sound as if they are being performed live.

Vocals are definitely live, as she slips a bit in the opening lines. They are not double-tracked either, just reverbed. Love the Belew-style guitar solo, but the song is pretty monotonous.

That's The Budos. Good for them. Their new EP is great.

She's using 2 mics. The one on our right has a ton of reverb. Totally live, totally awesome.

Obviously everything is real, they are just good musicians.. that sucks that if something is super tight people immediately think it must be fake

Anyone know set times for tonight's show? I can't get anyone on the phone over at the Bell House...

definitely lip synched or so much reverb you can't even hear her real voice. weird.
