St. Vincent – Cruel

By , November 30, 2011 10:00 am

Slow week – aside from the Black Keys and the Roots, the rest of 2011 is all Christmas albums and best-of lists. So here’s another one of my favorite songs from 2011, the best off St. Vincent’s excellent Strange Mercy (although I’m sure Robin Smith would pick a different tune from that album). “Cruel” is deliciously weird like the best Annie Clark songs, but its heart is that wonderful bridge and follow-up chorus and the way Clark’s beautiful vocals and the playful guitar motif work in concert. Great stuff.
