#songoftheday / #amlistening = ST. VINCENT: “FAST SLOW DISCO”

Today St. Vincent — aka Annie Clark — has released a rather erotic video for her luscious and pulsating new single, “Fast Slow Disco.”  It basically depicts red-hot dancing that turns into an orgy at a sweaty club that would seem to be packed entirely with males except for her.  (Well, we think we might’ve spotted another woman near the end, but we’re not positive.)  In any case, if M/M action is not your thing, you’ll probably find it boring, but we applaud her for having the courage to make this video in spite of the risk that it could potentially limit the song’s audience.  The best art challenges people anyway, right?   We also give her kudos for making a video for this one, as you usually don’t see many videos for one-off singles.  Or if you do, they’re just lyric videos.  But, no, this is a proper live action video.

Hmm — it just occurred to us that this could be the first single from a new album, but she just released MASSEDUCATION last year, so it would be quite the feat to get another full-length album out this year.  That would be lovely, however!

We wonder if people’s porn filters will block this one for showing so much skin.  We hope not, though!

    It seems like she does her best work when she makes singles to put out in between albums. This one is the best thing since caramel apples.
