Annie Clark of St. Vincent

One of my friends recently asked "What's the appeal of St. Vincent?"

Oddly, I never got into her/them. Some songs of hers I love but I'm especially not into St. Vincent's latest album. Sorry. Maybe it takes time to digest and I haven't devoted time to doing that.  I'm also way too into garage rock lately and this album is way in the other direction. Ask me again another time, maybe.

I did like the lead track off their 2009 album, The Strangers. Here's an acoustic version, just Annie Clark with a guitar, doing her thang.

Here's Annie on "Guitar Moves".  Turns out she's a pretty sick guitar player.

Here she is again playing with Andrew Bird, who's also great.
