Annie, I'm Not Your Daddy

It astonishes me how many people I come in contact with who have never heard of Annie Clark aka St Vincent. So, if you haven't lets start with an awesome Beatles cover

And if you thought the 'fretwork' was pretty awesome, check this cover of a Big Black classic for one of the very few youtube clips where i REALLY wish i was 'at that gig'..

Of course, if she didn't write her own amazing material then none of this would really matter. So, here's my favourite pop song of the last 5 years (produced by the incredible John Congleton)

St Vincent have an album out in a few weeks (via the back on form 4AD) - do you think the time has come for Annie?
