Song of the Day: St. Vincent – “Surgeon”

Christopher Tahy recalls: While St. Vincent (Annie Clark) might not be your first choice for Rocknuts “Song of the Day,” that’s just too bad. In terms of indie/experimental/rock music today, St. Vincent is a guatiring force to be reckoned with and I’ll fight anyone who disagrees. That’s one of the reasons I chose a live session cut of one of my favorite tracks, “Surgeon.” Appearing on 2011’s Strange Mercy – her third album – Clark is fearless in her vocals and guitar styles. She soars as her hand effortlessly glides over the fret board to deliver one of the most groovy, danceable riffs I’ve heard in a long time. It’s also worth noting that after the completion of this album, Clark went on to record Love This Giant with notable Talking Head David Byrne – my first review ever. Anyone good enough for David is good enough for me.
