premiere: "now. now."



We've been waiting impatiently for St. Vincent to drop her first LP for well over a year now, having fallen in love with what this review calls her "beautiful, playful, smart, intense jazz-folk-pop-classical hybrid thing" sometime back in 2005. In the time that's passed, we allowed our expectations for the record to reach some ridiculous astronomical heights, based mostly on her spectacular live show, the handful of rough early studio recordings we listen to on a daily basis, and most importantly, the notion that Annie Clark is basically capable of doing whatever she wants.

Put simply, Marry Me is even better than we had hoped. The LP, which features contributions from David Bowie pianist Mike Garson and assorted members of Annie's other band, is not only one of the most strikingly bold, self-assured, and ambitious debuts we've heard in forever, it's also one of the best records that will be released this year. And while it's definitely important to note Clark's obvious technical prowess and gift for crafting stunning, elaborately-arranged pop songs like "Marry Me" or "The Apocalypse Song" or the incomparable "Landmines" (wow), those aren't necessarily the things that make Marry Me so wonderful. The time Annie put into fashioning every moment of every composition into exactly what she envisioned is evident, and nearly every risk she takes on Marry Me pays off, giving the songs the kind of timeless feel that allows the album to transcend the "outstanding indie record" tag and venture into "unclassifiable instant classic" territory.

Our words clearly aren't going to do it justice, so here's the premiere of the album-opener, courtesy of Beggars Banquet:

mp3:
St. Vincent Now. Now.

gvb, your (collectively) writing is fucking awful; however, this song is sublime.

My goodness, that song is fantastic. My list of albums to anticipate just keeps getting longer....

It's amazing how much different her music sounds in the studio as opposed to live. I never expected a choir during the "You don't mean that, say you're sorry" part. Or at any part of the song, for that matter.

That being said: really beautiful stuff. Can't wait.

i've played that song on repeat for the past hour and notice something different each time. amazing. can't wait to see what the album will be like.

Katie,

"...your (collectively) writing is fucking awful..." is not even close to being grammatically correct.

So, you know – take that into consideration next time you're dissing someone. If you can't do better, it's generally best to keep your mouth shut.

I love you.

That was without a doubt the most cream filled glowing review I've ever read on this site...so I really expected something amazing...but two listens later and this song is still crapola.

Cool, once again, we all got the press release. 'Premiere'? Just stick to posting videos.

Just like Feist's album. I think the recorded songs are good, but don't compare to the way Annie (and Feist) are able to pull the songs off live.

Plus, I didn't think she could take a bad picture, yet they are making one the cover of her album. What gives? Yet another mis-representation of the loveliness that is Ms. Clark.

Well it's the prettiest album cover I've ever seen.

I was the only one who wrote anything negative about the song and I've been trying all day to find a reason to like it but I don't...I just can't figure out why it's headling GvB and Stereogum.

Admittedly, Paris is Burning was oodles better, but there's still something about this song that draws me in. It's off-kilter and sorta all over the place, but I love it.

Marry Me's been my most anticipated album this year, even with a new Architecture in Helsinki album that I know will be brilliant and a new Clientele album that I'm enjoying more than Strange Geometry.

I am surprised at the complete opposite direction she has taken from the "Paris is burning" ep (unless I need to refresh myself to it, it has been a while). I actually like this song much more and hope the rest of the album travels down this path.
I cant wait to see this show either when it comes to Boston.

She's pretty cute. In the sort of natalie portman/Audrey Tautou way. Her music is..interesting. I just now have listened to "These Days" and "Now Now" for the first time.She may need to grow on me.

Whoa... that track is annoying. And then, miraculously, it gets MORE annoying in the last ten seconds.

I think her look on the cover is the one she was going for, just my feel from what personality traits (or quirks) I picked up from her performance and my telling her thanks. Reminiscent of a childish wonder, or perhaps she has rediscovered her own.

And I agree with the Feist comparison in that these two must be seen live. This applies much more to St. Vincent in my opinion. Her control of this song is more obvious and the direction for it is more followable than here in the recording. I still like it though, yes.

It was pretty rad live in Seattle with her stomping her shoes and all. Bang! Bang!

this song is great! Now Chris.....if you could only "premiere" a new Polyphonic Spree song....we know you have them!

It has a really interesting and original colour to it. The mix sounds great. One minor note of reserve though: the end of the tune is a little tedious. The rest I find pretty flawless in its own rough, purposedly imperfect and mesmerizing way.

Really wonder what the rest of the album CAN sound like after that.

sometimes you can go to earn the Rose zuly for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the rose zulie to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the rose online zuly for your own. you can earn the rose online zulie alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can get the Arua ROSE zuly as the rewards in this game.
