Out of the ordinary

A few weeks ago, I reported on the fact that St Vincent was doing press for her new album MASSEDUCTION armed with a Carrie Brownstein-scripted "interview kit". Credit, then, to the BBC's Mark Savage, then, for managing to successfully navigate through his interview with her without asking any anodyne/cliched questions that might have prompted the kit's use.

He did get a demonstration, though, during a meeting that took place inside a bright pink cube that he had to crawl into, having been led there by a cloaked woman - all part of her plan to "shake things up" and put herself and her interviewers "in uncomfortable positions".

She continues to cement her status as one of the most fascinating artists around. I just hope that at some point she'll put out an album that I can truly love in its entirety.
