Marry Me

Genre: Indie Rock, Pop; Lead Performer: St. Vincent; Status: In Season; Seasons: 1

St. Vincent is Annie Clark, 24, a multi-instrumentalist whose day job is to play guitar for cultish acts like the Polyphonic Spree. Turns out she’s found time to moonlight, incorporating her employers’ whimsy into Marry Me, a solo debut that swerves from sweet-as-molasses love songs — laced with lethal humor — to industrial tracks reminiscent of a less squawky Björk. All the hoopla may be a bit much (the evil carnival of ”Paris Is Burning” alone appears to contain 47 different musical effects), but this saint is worthy of her own cult following. B+
