Grot: a new single from St. Vincent

Annie Clark, who performs under the name of St. Vincent, has put out three albums in the past few years and has collaborated with any number of musical groundbreakers, such as Beck, Andrew Bird, and The Polyphonic Spree.

This past week, she released the 7″ Grot (with Krokodil on the B side) in honor of Record Store Day. This five plus minute piece is a strange but engrossing exploration of melodic repetition, combined with an almost acidic guitar and vocal. With lyrics like ‘Power doesn’t care what you want; Power doesn’t care what you need’, this song’s cyclical motion is almost hypnotic and absolutely psychedelic.
