What is strange mercy? Strange Mercy is an album built around that idea, an unsparing examination of both telling and grappling with the truth, cloaked in some of the most sublime music of St. Vincent’s aka Annie Clark’s career.

Strange Mercy features very little of the baroque strings, woodwinds, and reeds that marked Clark’s last album Actor, and the grooves are sturdy, deep and beguiling. Consequently, it’s a much more guitar-oriented album than Clark has ever made. Clark is one of the most gifted guitarists to come along in the new millennium, and Strange Mercy is filigreed with indelible hooklines and ingenious rhythm parts, not to mention a concise and debonair solo on “Neutered Fruit” and a couple of Frippy freakouts on the glorious “Northern Lights.”

    I am so mothereffing excited for this show, you have no idea.
    Like been talking about it almost daily since the show was announced excited.
    Having friends who I don’t see every day still tell me I need to pick a different album to put on excited.

    Haven’t had time to buy my tickets yet, this would add a whole new level of excitement!

    I would love to go to this show for a number of reasons.
    1st: I’ve been a fan for years and have never been able to catch her live.
    2nd: It’d be a great date.
    3rd: It’d be nice to win something.
    I’m crossing my fingers. Thanks!

    Oh WOW. St. Vincent is incredible! If anyone is on the fence about going, and would like to see what they sound like live, check out their recent KCRW (Los Angeles) performance & interview.

    Somehow, I had no idea St. Vincent was in town, and I would be so sad to miss this show. Thank you pipeline for preventing me from living a life full of regret.

  37. Berenice October 14, 2011 at 4:05 pm #

    Oh god I how this drawing hasn’t happened yet! I love annie’s ability to shred. Also, what better way to follow up a timbers victory? Not much.
