St. Vincent

I just bought St. Vincent's new album. This girl is a gem. She has been a part of Sufjan Steven's band and also a member of The Polyphonic Spree. Anyone else a fan?

I think she's a horribly talented musician and has beautiful lyrics, with amazingly catchy melodies.

So yeah, I dig her.

She's quite something. I like the new album, imho it's slightly better than the first and i've played it a lot the past month. Apparently she made this album by writing scores to her favorite films and then turning those ideas into songs in a more conventional pop format and i think it shows.

Like musicman0000 said, she's even better live. If she released a good live record, i'd buy it in a second. I mean, the albums are nicely produced but i saw her perform in april and it was an excellent show and quite different, with a rawness and intensity to it that isn't very present on the records. Marrow rocked so hard, the album version doesn't even come close.

At one point she was rocking out so enthousiastically that the headstock of her guitar got caught in some cables and she almost unplugged herself. She noticed, her face went for a second and then she managed to untangle it without missing a note. One of the coolest stage ****ups/recoveries i've witnessed.

I really like some songs on the new album but I find some of them kind of boring. Maybe I just need to listen to it more.

I first fell in love with her with the track Jesus Saves on her first album and have been in love ever since.....

Yes!!! I'm seeing her in two days in Dallas. I saw her 2 years ago on her first tour with a full band without ever hearing her music before (a friend dragged me to it) and it was probably the best concert I've ever been to. She's really hillarious as well, I love her sense of humor.

I haven't heard the new album yet but I'm buying it at the show for sure.

Actor is soooo good. She's playing in my hood tonight but I don't have enough money to go. How lame is that?

I love her. I'm gonna buy ACTOR soon, and hopefully I'll see her with Andrew Bird in October.

Nice. I love how she never seems to play a song the same way, she's always experimenting with new arrangements, ranging from solo performances to huge lineups. She was on Letterman a while ago with a really big band.

Personally i love this song. It's not on her albums although it was available as a bonus track for Actor on itunes, but i prefer this song with a sparse arrangement.

I'm still loving Actor btw. It's a really good record.
