Seeing her for the second time tonight. Cannot wait.

Finally got around to giving the new one a good listen. I don't like it anywhere near as much as I do Strange Mercy, but it's got some great tracks. I love the first half, Rattlesnake thru Digital Witness is a great run. (Prince Johnny reminds me a lot of the title track to Strange Mercy, but a little edgier, more electro.) There isn't a bad track, but it does begin to run together a little bit for me.

Really hoping for Grot tonight, even though it's very unlikely.

Jesus. H. Fucking. Christ.

I am rendered speechless once again. There are very, very, very few artists who put on a show as good as St Vincent. Annie Clark is an absolute genius. A sexy, guitar-shredding, cool-as-fuck, effortless genius.

Highlights were everything.

I haven't heard the first two albums. When I last saw her, she played Your Lips Are Red and was mindblowing, but I didn't remember the "your skin's so fair it's not fair" part, I actually thought it was another song tonight, but MY FUCKING GOD. No superlatives are enough.

I have friends who think female artists (be they comedians or musicians) are lesser than males. Annie Clark is better than about 95% of the males I've ever seen. Just fucking stellar.

Also if anyone can point me to Annie's most fierce live performance of a song, any song, please let me know. I have to school my dumbarse friends who don't know her on Facebook tomorrow.

Yeah Annie is a goddess. She, Victoria Legrand, and Natasha Khan (Bat for Lashes) are like the holy trinity of female musicians for me.

Did she play the solo version of Strange Mercy at your show? It was probably the highlight of the show I saw a few months back, partly because I love the song and partly because she didn't play it the time I saw her before.

Totally agree. I'd rate Victoria Legrand just a touch below, only because I find Beach House's music a little homogenous (as much as I like them), but yeah, that's a great trinity.

Unfortunately she did not. I was a little devastated about that, Strange Mercy is probably my favourite St Vincent song, but it's a small complaint.

Most fierce? Probably Krokodil.

good call. I was lucky enough to be there for the first ever performance of that song, before it was released. Kicked ass.

The Cobbler listening method is fascinating.

He's a journalist, I'm surprised he listens at all.
