St. Vincent being Big Black @ Bowery (more by Amanda Hatfield)
St Vincent

St. Vincent will release 'Strange Mercy' on on 9/13, her new album for 4AD who say: "The record's 11 new tracks showcase Clark's gift for fusing the cerebral and the visceral, her melodically elegant arrangements packing hefty emotional punches. Clark reunited with producer John Congleton and recorded the album in her hometown of Dallas, TX at Elmwood Studios."

"Other musicians on the album include the Grammy Award winning Bobby Sparks on mini Moog, clavinet, Arp and Wurlitzer, Midlake's MacKenzie Smith on drums, and Daniel Hart on violin. Also contributing were Beck keyboardist and musical director Brian LeBarton, Evan Smith on woodwinds and Phil Palazzolo."

Annie Clark is also working with David Byrne on stuff. Asphalt Orchestra will perform some of it at this year's Bang on a Can Orchestra. David Byrne is also working with other people on stuff.

Check out another video of St. Vincent covering Big Black at Bowery Ballroom on 5/22, below...

When is she touring again? That Summerstage show last year was terrible and she even admitted it.

I saw her last summer at the Pitchfork festival and it wasn't that great of a show either. I think in all honesty, she was just fried. Having been touring off the last album for 18 months will do that to ya. I saw her earlier in the tour and she was fantastic though.

she can shred; she's got great style; she has a fantastic voice; she can write wonderful songs; she's gorgeous to look at; she's humble as they come. ms. clark is the total package.

Does anyone know if Ryan Dicks is still stalking her?

would you care to explain the nature of that seemingly-racist comment?

It's safe, like putting protective caps on outlets so none gets a zap.
