Music: St Vincent

Thought I'd let you all know about one of my new favorite alt-indie-pop singer-songwriters. I was lucky enough to stumble on St. Vincent's Marry Me on iTunes last week. It's a great album. St. Vincent is basically Annie Clark; a super talented multi-instrumentalist with a fantastic voice and a unique approach to alternative music. She has a knack for making the bizarre seem believable. Some of the songs on Marry Me are very strange and her arrangements are often over the top but something about her delivery and especially her voice pulls it all together beautifully. She might have picked up some of that from touring with Sufjan Stevens but her sound is all her own. Check out her official site and her MySpace page for more info and some cool videos.
