NPR Music is streaming the new St. Vincent album.
Second listen in, and I’m pretty sure that this tops Actor, at least in terms of pacing and texture; I haven’t absorbed the lyrics much yet. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve even gotten to the songs, really. There’s so much to digest in terms of riffs and unorthodox arrangement/production touches that I find myself getting caught up in the details. Not a bad thing in my book.
