St. Vincent – Actor [2009]

January 5, 2010

Album post #20.  Annie Clark’s sophomore album as St. Vincent, Actor, seems to be straight out of a dream.  Unexpected transitions, swirling orchestration, and catchy harmony vocals take Clark’s songs into some imaginary world or Disney movie.  So many of these songs appear straightforward at the start but blow me away when a three or four new layers enter at the climax.  I think Burton would do well to have Clark write the soundtrack for Alice in Wonderland.

Here is an incomplete youtube playlist.  Below are three standouts. Enjoy.
