I know I'm late to the party, but I have to tell you about St. Vincent today.
Her real name is Annie Clark and when she released this album with David Byrne in September, I was freaked out by the weird image of their faces and admittedly didn't check out the album because of it.
I listened to the entire soundtrack to the new Twilight movie last week, heard a St. Vincent song called 'The Antidote', and immediately started purchasing her stuff. So far my favorites are from her 2007 debut album, Marry Me. She toured with Sufjan Stevens for a bit before going solo, and her stuff reminds me of his in many ways. She's like the girl equivalent of Sufjan in my mind.
All this to say, you shouldn't judge a book (or an album) by its cover. What you should do is check out St. Vincent if you haven't already. I think you'll like her.
Happy Monday to you.
