Performances: Annie Clark of St. Vincent: “Cruel”


Annie Clark of St. Vincent performed a special session for radio station KCRW in front of a live audience with the song “Cruel” Check her interesting, eclectic solo! Really distinctive phrasing and effects…Check the video above, we LOVE her Japanese retro axe!

Clark was ranked # 93 in Spin Magazine’s List of “Top 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” with the following commentary:

“The tricky little lead lines with which she peppers St. Vincent’s already impressively broad catalog hint at Annie Clark’s almost casual mastery, but her true genius lies in the way she treats the guitar as a dynamic sound source rather than a static instrument. In her hands, and within a tautly complex compositional framework, the guitar sounds limitless, capable of screaming, squalling, soaring, and crying — as if Hendrix were sitting in with a downtown art-rock band.”

Wow!
