Is Bigger Better For St. Vincent?

David Yaffe writes: ‘Her striking new, vinyl-only single once again confirms St. Vincent’s idiosyncratic talent. But as her audience broadens, you have to wonder, is the big-time toxic to her art? In celebration of the darkest of Black Fridays, she just released a new single, “Pietà.” The drumbeat and synth bass are as insistent as they are ominous. Whatever you think from the song’s title, it’s the opposite.’
