Track Of The Day #462: St Vincent – Severed Cross Fingers


Annie Clark is a petite lady with a big talent. Better known as St Vincent, she was previously in The Polyphonic Spree and has just released her fourth solo studio album. If you ignore the dubious collaboration with David Byrne, her output has been progressively impressive, so this latest offering is her best yet in my book. It’s both quirky and moody, often very complex and with some cutting lyrics all wrapped up in exquisite musical arrangements, yet retaining a true pop sensibility throughout. One of the year’s best albums so far for me, so here’s a track for you to experience.
