First we had Shara Worden (AKA My Brightest Diamond), now Annie Clark is St. Vincent, a Stevens and Polyphonic Spree alum who is more than worthy of the spotlight herself. Unlike the operatic powerhouse of Worden, Clark's pipes are more delicate and layered in recording. Her guitar playing is truly impressive, both tasteful and explosive as the moment demands. Marry Me is a superb collection of keen, whimsical, ambitious pop music; a far rarer find than its unfettered cover suggests.
