Not only do I have major musical envy when it comes to Annie Clark, but now I have her to thank for getting me out of my post-trip sadness after leaving New York. Head over to the NPR website for a full stream of the new St. Vincent album, Strange Mercy, before it is released on the 13th of September. So far my favourite is the title track, Strange Mercy. It’s hard not to like a song with lyrics like: I’ll be with you lost boy/sneaking out where the shivers don’t find you. Adorable.
