It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Annie Clark, aka. St. Vincent, premiere indie songwriting darling, monstrous guitarist and general badass. So any news that she’s releasing new music is… er, something to my ears. Not going to say music. Was not going to say music.
Anyway, she’s collaborated with New Wave legend David Byrne (of Talking Heads fame) on an album due out in September called Love This Giant, and if the first two tracks – the impossibly catchy “Who” and the impossibly funky “Weekend in the Dust” – are anything to go by, it’s going to be incredible. All the tracks have a friggin’ brass section in them, for goodness’ sake!
I’ve preordered Love This Giant (naturally) and highly suggest that you do that same right now.
In other news: I’ve changed the blog’s header image – do you like it? I’m just glad I don’t have to cringe anymore when I look at my own blog…
