On the fifteenth anniversary of Tupac Amaru Shakur's passage from this sphere, Makaveli Ronald "Riskie" Brent (creator of the Makaveli Don Killuminati cover painting) & his homie Neneki "Nick" McGee, came by Amoeba Hollywood to pay homage with a live painting session in memoriam to the man born Lesane Parish Crooks.

Busting out the airtanks & the airbrush, they did a plein air, public demonstration of the nexus of talent & passion, inspiring reminisces from appreciative passerbys who rhapsodized about Tupac sightings & his impact on their lives.

___________________________


The 11 new tracks on Strange Mercy showcase St. Vincent's (a.k.a. Annie Clark) gift for fusing the cerebral and the visceral, her melodically elegant arrangements packing hefty emotional punches. She redefines the idea of the guitar hero, utilizing the instrument as a pointillist artist might wield a brush. Countless judiciously placed riffs and instrumental flares, each distinct and unique, cohere into grand tableaus. On "Cruel," she elicits punchy bursts like an R&B horn section. "Cheerleader" froths and boils, with deep and fuzzy guitars bubbling up to the surface, while "Surgeon" twirls about endlessly, Clark's vocals dancing amid a blizzard of notes.

Clark reunited with producer John Congleton and recorded Strange Mercy in her hometown of Dallas, TX. Other musicians on the album include the Grammy Award winning Bobby Sparks on mini Moog, clavinet, Arp and Wurlitzer; Midlake’s MacKenzie Smith on drums; and Daniel Hart on violin. Also contributing were Beck keyboardist and musical director Brian LeBarton, Evan Smith on woodwinds and Phil Palazzolo.
