St. Vincent is saving us with more of her unpredictable music! It’s February 25 tomorrow and that means St. Vincent’s self-titled album will be available for us to soak our ears into. Under her new label, Loma Vista, the album was produced by John Congleton and features Dap-Kings drummer Homer Steinweiss and Midlake’s McKenzie Smith on percussion. Listening to St. Vincent sounds pretty complex and incredible; her deeper lyrics somehow make the beautiful ugly and the ugly beautiful. Her album is impossible to get bored of because of how she challenges us with her unconventional sounds and concepts. Her strong confidence in her voice and vision is something music lovers can’t help but gravitate towards. Go St. Vincent!
