Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote Personnel: Annie Clark (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Daniel Hart (violin); Evan Smith (flute, clarinet, saxophone); Bobby Sparks (Clavinet, Wurlitzer organ, mini-Moog synthesizer); Brian LeBarton (keyboards); McKenzie Smith (drums); John Congleton (drum programming).
Muze PNote Recording information: Elmwood Studios, Dallas, TX.
Muze PNote Annie Clark goes even deeper into St. Vincent's fascinating contradictions on her third album, Strange Mercy, which was recorded in her hometown of Dallas, Texas. Soft meets sharp and harsh rubs up against tender on songs like "Surgeon" and "Cruel," where Clark's deceptively sweet vocals sound equally at home with gentle strings or harsh guitar outbursts.

Producer: John Congleton

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.71)
- Ranked #26 in Rolling Stone's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "[S]inger-guitarist keeps the thrilling art punk flowing."

Spin (p.88)
- "Her third album is her most mercurial yet, a dense clash of post-punk fuzz and baroque-pop rumination, with esoteric new elements..."

Spin (p.22)
- Ranked #34 in Spin's 'The Top 40 Albums Of 2011' -- "Her third solo album is terrifyingly beautiful, with well-manicured art-pop labyrinths betraying serpents beneath the soil."

Record Collector (magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] brave, uncompromising and lyrically elliptical record that has more than its fair share of spell-binding moments..."

Uncut (magazine)
- Ranked #43 in Uncut's '50 Best Albums Of 2011' -- "[A] playful, baroque and subtly provocative talent."
