Song of the Week: “Digital Witness” by St. Vincent


I’m a hipster for St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark, and thus excited by the release of her recent eponymous album.  “Digital Witness” is one of the most striking tracks off that album with its funky horns (or synths disguised as horns) and get-up-and-dance-at-a-funeral groove.

Take a listen & see.

The video will freak you out.  I think St. Vincent has usurped Bjork for the artist who frightens  me in the best way.

More commentary on this song via Stereogum and Pitchfork.

What are you listening to this week?  Let me know in the comments.
