writing about hating the internet on the internet is the definition of situational irony, i don’t really care what shakespeare thinks

 I just realized that my outfit from my last post was probably influenced by the three St. Vincent songs I've been listening to a lot lately that are like an awkwardly manic exploration of creativity, geometric dreams, and IN THE MOMENT art rock.

Stream St. Vincent's New Album

this album cover has stolen my heart- doesn't she look like an alien princess 

~excuse me while I spend the rest of my life trying to achieve her combination of hair, makeup and pristine facial expression; only to realize at the age of 96 that I will never reach that level of beauty and spend the rest of my life crying.~


This track starts really funky and electronic with a guitar (or maybe sax?) beat and it's kind of subversively conspicuous- and before you know it, she's singing and it's incredible. The song itself is about an experience she had where she went to a friend's ranch and really wanted to experience her surroundings- so she decided to take all her clothes off, and all of a sudden she noticed a sound like a rattlesnake, and off course was terrified. That's all really reflected in the frantic nature of the music and in the fact that the song is less of a terrifyingly introspective microcosm of the human experience (something that could easily happen with lyrics as metaphysical and solipsistic as, "Am I the only one in the only world?") and more into telling a story about an experience she had. I thought that this was a cool way to represent a song about having an intense focus on the here and now. And also THAT GUITAR SOLO YOU GUYS. *jumps onto motorcycle and rides into sunset*

bring me your loves

From the very start, this song is really simple but draws you in by being almost frightening in its desperation or urgency. I don't know, I just really love it -maybe because it showcases how truly lovely St.Vincent's voice is.

 digital witness

a) really REALLY fun dance beats that are great for Dancing In Your Room Time

b) focused on a fear (or more specifically- anxiety) of immersing our society in the digital/consumerist world so much that we forget how to be human beings and things like the concept of emotion are replaced by a scarily seamless combination of digital and real life.

What do you guys think, do you like these songs- and what have you been listening to lately?
