The 10 Best Songs We Heard This Week: Brian Eno & Karl Hyde, St. Vincent

Our music editor Jillian Mapes is at SXSW this week, gamely braving the crowds and dancing the robot, so you get me back on MP3 duties for the week. Sadly, due to the aforementioned SXSW, this is a pretty awful week for new music, so this is a roundup of stuff I’ve heard over the last couple of weeks that’s caught my attention (and that Jill didn’t cover last week). It’s an interesting bunch of stuff, too, ranging from the first we’ve heard from the Eno & Karl Hyde collaboration to neo-kosmische and dance-floor fillers. All the tracks are streaming for free, too. Huzzah. … Read More

St. Vincent Mines Contradictions, Talks Tech and Sexuality with NPR at SXSW 2014

Annie Clark is a woman of contradictions, a fact made clear by her two sole appearances at SXSW yesterday. At the first, an hour-long afternoon chat with NPR Music critic Ann Powers, Clark showed her humanity and her humor. Nine hours later, at her big gig at NPR Music’s official SXSW showcase at Stubb’s, she was a goddamn robot, right down to scripted banter and angular choreography. Her new look (the wild grey mane, mostly) and live set (a powder-pink throne) invite digital documentation, and yet, that’s precisely what Clark doesn’t want, going so far as to announce it before the show starts. All of these juxtapositions are just as interesting as Clark’s songs. … Read More

A Track-by-Track Guide to St. Vincent’s ‘St. Vincent’

Yesterday, while walking around Greenpoint, listening to St. Vincent’s new album, I noted two young people sporting whitish-purple dyed hair. Perhaps it was my tunnel vision, but I wondered whether the influx of gerontophile ‘dos in a youth-invaded neighborhood was at all inspired by the look St. Vincent unveiled a few months ago, when she started releasing material from her upcoming album. The color of an artist’s hair may seem an inane element to focus on amid the release of such a good new album, but her locks — beautifully violated by synthetics — are actually quite representative of St. Vincent’s approach to technology on St. Vincent, released in the US today. … Read More
