St. Vincent on Minn. Public Radio

St. Vincent recently recorded a three song set for Minnesota public radio program The Current. The three songs she played ("Human Racing," "Your Lips Are Red," and "Marry Me") all appear on her fantastic new album Marry Me, which was released a few weeks ago on Beggar's Banquet. To listen to the stream click here, and you will find the link to the audio on the right hand side of the page. The recording is pretty high quality and Annie Clark's guitar playing is the real highlight here.

For those not familiar with St Vincent, it is the name under which Annie Clark, formerly of The Polyphonic Spree and Sufjan Stevens' backing band, records her solo efforts. Her music reminds me a lot of My Brightest Diamond, whose principal member Shara Worden was also a member of Sufjan Stevens' touring band. St Vincent is touring this fall in support of The National. The tour stops in Dallas at the Granada Theatre on September 14th.
