The Best Songs Of 2011: #09 – St Vincent ‘Cruel’

How stupidly fucking talented, beautiful and cool can one person be? American born Annie Erin Clark, she who is St Vincent, is that very person. Once a member of The Polyphonic Spree and part of Sufjan Stevens touring band, she’s not only drop dead gorgeaus but plays guitar with a ferociousness and inventiveness not seen in years. Oh and she and has the pipes to m tooatch. Her album ‘Strange Mercy’ has been troubling the top regions of most end of year polls, which this little beauty features on. Sounding like something Prince only wishes he could write these days, one listen to the batshit craziness of ‘Cruel’ and you’ll be humming that bastard guitar hook for the rest of 2012.
