Everyone seems to love her but I just don't get it. If there is something redeeming to her music I won't know because I can't even make it through the first minute of any clip I've ever seen posted. Y'all go ahead without me....
OK, I think I get the "free spirited hipster experimental noise thing played by a (questionably) cute female" but honestly not seeing the brilliance. For having gone to Berklee for two years she doesn't seem to have soaked up much in the way of knowledge...or am I missing something or is this akin to the Yoko Ono performance art music thing with less screaming?
I'm willing to cut her plenty of slack to see where she goes over time. Seems to have some ideas at least, and she's playing guitar, plus doing something different.
I'm not swapping out my Muddy Waters records for St. Vincent - but old Muddy ain't no more records.
That would be "Andress".
As far as St Vincent goes, she's clearly a much, much better guitarist than me and I dig some of her funky lofi tones and her voice, but the songwriting just doesn't do much for me (at least not any of the stuff of hers I've heard so far).
