Vincents sophomore release where she captured something closer to her now signature style: Dark witty lyrics with distorted lush guitars. Film is a surprisingly large influence this time around as Annie Clark watched several Disney films from her youth on mute and composed music along to her favorite scenes to create sharp atmospheric soundscapes. Actor Q&A. Producers John Congleton & St. Writers St. More St. Vincent albums. Show all albums by St. The songs on St. Vincent's second album, Actor, are primarily sung from the perspective of women who feel stifled and restless in their safe, orderly lives. Her characters worry about the judgment of neighbors and strangers, struggle with boredom and complacency, attempt to sublimate or defuse their anger, and, in one of the record's darkest selections, fantasize about disappearing completely into a new identity. In her heaviest, most warped riffs, Clark finds the grace in her subjects' frustration and purges their fear and repressed anger with a glorious, singular noise. In Actor Out of Work, an atypically straightforward rock. Vincent - Actor 2009. To favorites 3 Download album. Listen album. Indie Rock Indie Pop. singer-songwriter, indie, mellow, melodic. Songs in album St. Vincent - The Strangers. Vincent's Annie Clark is a unique talent. Things are murkier, but no less fascinating, on Actor, Marry Me's darker and more ambitious follow-up. Musically and lyrically, the album often feels like a duel and occasionally, a duet between Clark's collected, literate side and her raging emotions. This is especially striking on Actor's arrangements and instrumentation, which are even more expressive than they were on Marry Me. It was a huge achievement that still barely hinted at what was to come. Actor was, in many ways, very much of its time and place, the late 00s stretch of baroque-pop Brooklyn indie. Clark excelled within that milieu, and the album solidified her as one of the emergent names at the tail end of last decade. And within its DNA, you can already see the blueprints for where St. Vincent would go. Its a moment that both represents Clarks talent crystallizing and still feels rooted in another era, prefiguring how far behind she would leave those origins. Vincent - Actor review: Actor shows the potential and talent that St. Vincent ultimately holds. The mystique of Actor can all begin with The Strangers. A tidy and fitting opening track which transforms from cute to daring before angelic hymns whisk away the beautiful mess created. The Strangers and Actor as a whole may not live up to the pop-sensibilities found in Now Now from Marry Me per se, but the rich and harmonious sound is still there. Vincent is rather well versed at integrating darker, heavier sections with harmless, fragile portions found in tracks like The Neighbors and Marrow. With such in-song diversity, Actor floats by with little hesitation or disturbances

Great album. Horrible sounding pressing, full of surface noise from start to finish.
