St Vincent

Annie Clark, alias St Vincent, is to issue a seven-inch single featuring brand new tracks ‘KROKODIL’ and ‘GROT’ for Record Store Day (21 Apr). Her label 4AD states that the release “showcases Clark’s aggressive guitar chops and marks a stylistic departure from [last year’s album] ‘Strange Mercy'”.

Speaking of ‘Strange Mercy’ – itself somewhat of a “stylistic departure” from her earlier work – Clark will release ‘Stranger Mercy’, a deluxe version of the long player, on 8 May. As per ‘deluxe reissue’ specifications, it not only includes the original long player, but also a DVD featuring the four-part live session St Vincent did for 4AD late last year.

And if you haven’t yet seen that, I urge you to do so now:
