The Saturday Alternative – Oct. 14th, 2017

Modified: October 14, 2017

Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was MASSEDUCTION by St. Vincent, out now on Loma Vista.

St Vincent has released her fifth studio album, and though she may have taken a turn towards pop, it’s not what you think. For MASSEDUCTION, Annie teamed up with Jack Antonoff, the uber-pop producer, formerly of the band Fun., and more recently of Bleachers, and so she obviously had an idea of the kind of sound she was going for. That being said, while striving for a more easily digestible, synth-driven sound may for many result in a lacking ambition, this album is bursting with creativity, excitement and the kind of stylish absurdity that only a St. Vincent album could deliver. On top of that, it’s perhaps Annie’s most clearly personal album to date, opening up on love, sexuality and dependence in a less cryptic way then we might expect. In a press release Annie Clark said “every record I make has an archetype. Strange Mercy was Housewives on Pills. St Vincent was Near Future Cult Leader. MASSEDUCTION is different, its pretty first person. You can’t fact check it but if you want to know about my life, listen to this record.”
