Now Hear This: Too slow or too fast?

St. Vincent - Marry Me

Ok, so where the hell have I been? I totally just discovered St. Vincent. I’ve seen the album around (the gorgeous young lady with red lips and wild, wiry curls standing in front of a gray backdrop), but I just kept thinking, ehhh maybe not? I hadn’t heard not a single song, mind you. I was just avoiding it because that’s what I do on occasion to new artists. In hopes that someone will do my work for me and tell me if it’s good or whatever. I did my homework, ladies and gents, and you know what? It’s good!

So here’s to being slow and too fast, too. Check out the sounds below.
