Oh, St Vincent!

St Vincent

For the past week or so, pretty much the only music I’ve been listening to can be heard on St Vincent’s new album, eponymously titled St Vincent.

It’s an electronic, rock, vocal mix of songs that really catch me. The song Birth in Reverse, is a bouncy dance track, littered with mini-guitar solos and electronic fuzz, and it’s about … well, who knows what:

Like a birth in reverse
What I saw through the blinds
You could say that I’m saying phenomenal lies
On the cosmic eternity party line
Was a birth in reverse in America

But it’s as catchy as hell.
