Clark is still laughing about her latest “breakout” moment. While she was fooling around with a banjo at an Austin apartment during the 2006 SXSW Music Festival, Castanets’ Ray Raposa walked in and, having just met Clark, asked her to play the instrument at his showcase that week. My Brightest Diamond’s Shara Worden saw the show and hipped Stevens to St. Vincent’s music. A few emails later, Clark was in Europe playing in his band and serving as the opening act. So why’s she laughing? “I’d never touched a banjo before that night in Austin.”

I'd probably agree with your review and rating. It's a remarkably solid debut with massive amounts of promise.

the regina spektor comparisons could go even further. i thought soviet kitsch had a lot of promise but was less focused than begin to hope. i think annie can go places.

I bought this album on a whim and I really dig it. Honestly, I feel like there is a bit volta influence in the guitar playing. I'm not one of the people on teh coma who compares everyone to the volta. This album is really creative and interesting to listen to.

Doubt it. But they both might have the same jazz and avant garde influences...resulting in some occasionally similar abstract guitar stylings. See the bottom of the first post of this thread for info on her uncle's influence.


Here's some great pics of Annie...

I'm still loving this album, and I'm still pissed I missed her show. It was at one of my favorite venues around here.

Oh well, there's always next time.

I've found her to be like a less annoying Regina Spektor. I'll be seeing her support The National in November.

I don't know what it is about this album, but I still can't get enough of it. Everytime I put it on I want to listen to it twice straight through. Her lyrics, her voice, her music, it's all just so good to me. I love how spunky she is to. The way she rips away at her guitar sometimes, adds a little muscle to her delivery, or inhales loudly...sexy.
