Ever since we saw St. Vincent perform with David Byrne and their Brass Band on the Love This Giant tour I have become enraptured by Annie Clark‘s musical genius. She captivates her audiences with riveting guitar playing combined with sheer bravado and energy.
I discovered today from Pitchfork that St. Vincent will be releasing a new album, St. Vincent on February 25th in the US.
You can stream the first track, “Birth In Reverse” by simply joining the St. Vincent mailing list.
Or if you’d like here is the SoundCloud edition.
Congratulations Annie for being named recipient of the 2013 Smithsonian Magazine American Ingenuity Awards in Performing Arts.
David Byrne presented a heartfelt ad-lib speech for Annie Clark’s award.
By the time I was to introduce Annie (the last award as she’d be performing right after), I realized that everyone probably had had enough talks, as wonderful as they were. So I abandoned my notes, ignored the teleprompter and winged it. I talked about what I said above: what a wonderful world was represented here where the arts can mix with science and with social activism. I also said some nice things about Annie, but there was no need to explain what she does, as she was going to demonstrate that herself.
