    Default St. Vincent



    Annie needs her own thread. With so many big releases this year to have come out already I think St. Vincent's Actor has been overlooked by many. She has one of the best voices live and made her TV debut last night on Letterman and was just fantastic. She has two CDs out right now, Marry Me (2007) and Actor (2009). Here are some samples of a few of her songs:

    Marrow (Live on Letterman):



    Paris is Burning:



    The Party:

    I have seen her 3 times this year and each time was enjoyable. I fully support this thread and her rise to the top of the music crop. "Laughing with a mouth of blood" is one of my favorites.

    I also support all past and future collaborations with The National.

    I saw her at Sasquatch and Bonnaroo and both sets were good. Actor is currently #8 as far as my favorite albums of 2009 go. And that's not a knock on it. I enjoy that album a lot. She's very talented and I hope she sticks around for a while.

    A total QT. And she fucking kills on the guitar. Her show in Dallas earlier this month was one of the best I've seen this year.

    I'm glad I finally bought Actor the other day. It was different then I had expected, I shouldn't have delayed so long.

    I am in full agreement with this thread. I have been listening to her and only her for the last 2 days. I can't get enough.

    Seriously. Actor has grown so much on me. From being an album I liked to an album I loved to being one of my definite top ten of the decade.

    I don't think I can get on board for this one. Top ten of the year for sure but of the decade? That's crazy. Who else is she cutting in front of on this list?

    Hey, I was at this show. Even with the minor sound problems it was one of the best sets of the weekend.

    St. Vincent avatar = good idea. Everyone in the cult needs to change their avatar now. New meme alert.

    Okay, I know I'm late to the party, but I just downloaded Actor and you're all absolutely right. This woman is bloody fantastic.

    Question: does she always tour with such a large band or were those one-offs for Letterman and Kimmel? Anyone get the feeling her record company is hoping they have a Feist-like situation on their hands with St. Vincent?

    That's awesome! Good to know. I wish I'd gotten into her sooner. Hopefully she'll be hitting NY up again. I can't do the Andrew Bird show on 10/21.

    I'm even later to this artist.

    I enjoy when an artist/band releases a CD that "loops". Meaning, it flows so smoothly that the last song plays right into the first track. Since it's a new CD, it takes me a couple of tracks from the beginning to realize that the CD had finished.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    She played with a full band at the el rey but the band on letterman looked fuller I believe. So I wasn't there but I heard she played solonat the masonic hall earlier this yeah. Imagine how Actor would sound live with a full orchestra. Make it happen, la phil!

    I am pretty sure she lives in the Brooklyn area. Go visit her.

    I'm not trying to ruin anyone's enjoyment of St. Vincent, but is anyone else thinking of Ferris Bueller's Day Off when listening to the live version of "Marrow"?
