The joys of St Vincent

St Vincent
Originally uploaded by uncascrooge
I'm a tentative fan of Annie Clark, the Polyphonic Spree-er who has gone solo under the name of St Vincent. I loved the first show I saw her do, fell for (some) of her album Marry Me, then was a tad disappointed when I next saw her live (muddy sound, my favourite tune not on the setlist).

When last she came to London, I interviewed her in her tour van outside the Slaughtered Lamb for a little feature we call The Playlist. She told me about songs that influenced her album and I pretended like I knew them all. Here's the result.

PS. I don't think she is named after a certain NFB docudrama.
