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.
