St. Vincent

FUV's New Dig: St. Vincent

by Darren DeVivo

St. Vincent
St. Vincent
Universal / Loma Vista / Republic Records

St. Vincent blurs the lines between innovation and accessibility. She tests, and even destroys, boundaries. The tension that results from such musical experimentation is what makes her music so infectious: Pounding dance rhythms come and go, synthesized blasts of sound pulse and throb, angular guitars cut and slice. All the nervous musical activity partially, but not totally, masks the wit and bite of the lyrics.
