St Vincent


#21

Urgh, the Brixton Academy is such a shite venue, absolutely ruined seeing Grimes for me. Think I might pop to Manchester, or even Brussels (I’ve never been)


#22

That VIP thing is complete nonsense - I mean, c’mon, a photo opportunity with a guitar… haha!


#23

yeah its a real turn off for me as a fan -

it should be about the music maynnnnnn !


#24

Quite restrained and pretty, relies a little too much on the word motherfucker but hey ho. More interested/afeared how the rockers/high energy tracks get produced by this pop man she’s got on board but this doesn’t bode too ill


#25

I like the verses and the ‘you’re the only motherfucker…’ bit is really nice (is that what a pre-chorus is?) but the chorus falls a bit flat imo.

Massively excited to see her again though.


#26

I like this new track, it’s not a standout but a worthwhile addition to the catalogue. can’t wait for the new record


#27

Agree with what everyone has said above - I like this, but it’s a bit of an odd one for her big comeback. Given her status these days I was expecting something a lot ‘bigger’.


#28

Not trying to be edgy, just giving me two cents, whenever I hear a female vocalist on a song with really annoying melodies and/or production it’s ALWAYS St. Vincent. I think she’s my most disliked musician in the scene…still if anyone can point me in the direction of her less annoying shit I’ll give her another chance


#29

“not trying to be edgy but I’m gonna say something that makes me come across as a total melt”


#30

I’d suggest either the beatles greatest hits or radiothread. :wink:
Hey I thought her first record was great and it was the track Paris is burning that first caught my attention. I think she’s fucking awesome but horses for courses and all that.
And I thought her last record was her best.


#31

Alright I’ll be that dickhead

WHERE ARE THE GUITARS ANNIE?!

It’s alright, I guess. I listened to it seven times in a row without noticing today so urm that must be good? Either way it’ll be interesting to see how it reflects the rest of the albums sound…


#32

Speak for yourself


#33

They’re available for photo opportunities only.


#34

I concur! I love her guitar playing style/sound. :frowning:


#35

Well I’m sure it was mentioned somewhere that this album would be a big departure from her previous works… maybe it’s all going to be piano led…


#36

it’s a Yes from me, Clive.


#37

i really like it. reminds me of her earlier marry me type stuff.

Hello St Vincent fans,
As you may be aware, I’ve been a huge fan since her debut LP (wrote about it on its anniversary here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BWW-uC2jjaG/) and on Monday from 2-4pm I’m going to analyse her music taste/oeuvre for an hour, before making her a mixtape of music I think she might appreciate. Anything you’d like me to include?

You can listen in at http://www.sohoradiolondon.com

This is the monthly Drowned in Sound show, and I now pick a person I/DiS likes then act as a human algorithm, processing tastes and piecing it back together again…

Here’s last month’s for David Lynch

Here’s the month before for Hayley from Paramore

Before I fleshed out the concept I made one for Adam Curtis


#39

I love her guitar-based stuff too (that fuzz tone!) but I’m well on board with a more piano or keyboard led approach. This was an instant favourite of mine as soon as I heard it after all and barely a guitar to be heard

The show is available to stream on demand on Mixcloud
