St. Vincent - "Digital Witness"
When St. Vincent first spoke about her new album, she said she "wanted to make a party record you could play at a funeral.” With "Digital Witness," her latest offering from the forthcoming record, you really get a sense of just what she meant by that. The song is a luscious blend of dizzing guitars, percussion, and funky horns soundtracking Annie's tongue-in-cheek commentary on our culture's obsession with technology. Honestly, I would've bought the album just based on Annie's glorious cover art, but having material like this and "Birth In Reverse" to back it up, makes my need to buy four or five copies a little more justified. - Katie K.
