I'm getting into a habit of ignoring top debut albums and 'getting it' on the 2nd album. I did it with Bat For Lashes (who I stalked on Youtube for a good hour or 2 last night... The 'What's a Girl To Do' video is top!) and I'm doing it again with St Vincent. I thought the last single was excellent and the album has been played a few times in the office so I've had time to get my head around ...

I'm getting into a habit of ignoring top debut albums and 'getting it' on the 2nd album. I did it with Bat For Lashes (who I stalked on Youtube for a good hour or 2 last night... The 'What's a Girl To Do' video is top!) and I'm doing it again with St Vincent. I thought the last single was excellent and the album has been played a few times in the office so I've had time to get my head around it. It's a quirky beast alright. There's some proper skewed pop and songwriting on here. The arrangements are well far out and it doesn't really sound like anything else at all I can think of. Check out the Neighbours to hear get an idea of what I mean... It's all over the place but it's held together by Clark's top songwriting. It's very cinematic in its scope and in its sound with some sweeping arrangements taking you by the horns and only letting you go when some massive drums come in and confuse the fuck out of you. I can hear melodies from a few songs but I think they'd just throw you off the scent if I said who they were as the music doesn't sound like them at all (OK there's a song which reminds of 'Mary's Child' by Boney M.... But then another reminds me of an old Screaming Trees tune....) See I said it wouldn't help. Actor is a really delightful charming record which I seriously think you should check out as it's well interesting.
