St. Vincent - Strange Mercy (Vinyl)
St. Vincent, the nom-de-stage of Annie Clark delivered album number three in 2011. The record's 11 tracks showcase Clark's gift for fusing the cerebral and the visceral, her melodically elegant arrangements packing hefty emotional punches. Clark reunited with producer John Congleton and recorded the album in her hometown of Dallas, TX. STRANGE MERCY finds St. Vincent redefining the idea of the guitar hero, utilizing the instrument as a pointillist artist might wield a brush.
