St. Vincent - "Some of Them Are Old" (Brian Eno cover)


St. Vincent frontwoman Annie Clark has promised new material in 2011, whether it’s an LP with her band or her long-awaited collaboration with ex-Talking Head David Byrne. Fittingly, Clark’s started breaking out a romantic, swoony cover of onetime Talking Heads’ producer Brian Eno’s “Some of Them Are Old.”

As in her original material, Clark knows how to make a lot of beautiful, dirty, scuzzy noise on the guitar – all her dizzying soloing and crescendoing drums bookended by emotive end-of-the-party smoky-ballroom piano (not to mention her sweet, confessional voice) makes for a stunning, hypnotizing dichotomy. You’ll want to give this a few listens while you wait for a new record.
