    Definitely got some Young Americans era Bowie vibe to it.

    Not feeling that to be honest. Very literate production and songwriting, but not really doing much with it and the various effects are just masking the lack of development. More detachment, not quite loose enough to be funky, stuck up slack alley a bit. Don't know who she is anymore than 5 minutes ago.

    By definition, a “Sly/Prince vibe” is not futuristic. Aping already-existing 70s and 80s styles, costumes, press campaigns, and retro media (8 track) is not “futuristic.” She’s mining the exact same 70s retro vibe as Greta Van Fleet on their new album campaign, with the key difference, of course, that’s she a far more talented, creative, and interesting musician and personality than they are.

    But both albums are perfect exemplars of the post-modern trap pop/rock music is caught in, where all that’s left to do is rummage through the thrift shop of the past and pick out which old clothes to put on today. When Bowie did Young Americans, it was a somewhat original idea for a white rock star to play dress-up as a soul man. A current rock star playing dress-up as Young Americans-era Bowie is a copy of a copy of a copy.

    Of course this will be massively popular, get a 9.8 on Pitchfork, and top the year-end lists, because what else is there out there to compete with this? At least she’s clever and good at the game she’s playing, compared to the likes of the Kiszka brothers.

    I meant a sonically futuristic spin on Sly and Prince. Modern sounds with a wink to the past. Well, more than a wink in this case.

    I dig it, it's a fun and sleazy 70's pastiche. People are always going to find some excuse to write off anything new St. Vincent puts out - too slick and pop-influenced; too grimy and unpolished; too derivative of *insert older artists that critic enjoys very much, but new artists aren't allowed to imitate*

    I think some of the people criticizing her would find something to enjoy if they just sat back and listened without bias.

    I thought that too from the opening bars! which is a problem for me, cause I can't stand those two oafs above.

    Just spent $$ on a machine that plays cassettes so you know I'm getting one. Also LP, Tee & Keychain. Love the new look. Can't get enough.

    Young American’s funkier side Bowie
    Love it

    Actually the piano intro sounds like Kooks from Hunky Dory!

    She talks about her shows being scaled back
    I could watch her intricate hand jestures

    And some fretboard fun

    Very well done retro elements in the video


    Can’t wait till May 14th!

    You need to hear the stark resequenced stripped back piano vocal delivery of Masseducation.

    To be fair, the cassette and 8-track versions will probably be the most “collectible” copies of the album as I’m sure they aren’t making a ton of them.

    Cassette has been the fad for the past couple of years. I don’t see new 8 tracks as often though. Somehow reel to reel tapes were skipped in all this nostalgic analog revival :(

    reel to reel:

    The software and hardware is too expensive for the average joe (or jane). Which was true back in the day as well.
