up top, you can catch gorillaz/blur frontman/flip-flopper damon albarn performing “apple carts” from dr dee, and after the jump, annie clark shredding through strange mercy’s “cruel,” both from later live with jools holland.
and that’s not all, st. vincent fans: clark stopped by scott auckerman’s comedy bang bang and performed three more strange mercy songs. check those out here. what’s up hotdog?
sporting an asymmetrical dress and some doe-eyes that would make jayma mays jealous, annie clark was positively beaming last night during her performance of the synth-friendly “cruel” on the late show with david letterman. the song comes to us from her album strange mercy, which is out september 13.
i especially love the way she just stands around in front of the microphone as dave greets the entire st. vincent band, clark last.
annie clark: guitar virtuoso, polyphonic spree-er, manic-pixie, indie pinup, and now, in her new video for “cruel,” from her sophomore album strange mercy, kidnap victim. that’s right, annie clark does it all.
strange mercy is out september 12.
