Description
(2013 Grammy Nominee for Best Recording Package) "The Talking Heads frontman and the multi-instrumentalist Annie Clark's decision to build their collaboration—their first and, let's hope, not last record together—from a brass band up was inspired," writes The Guardian. "It makes for a consistently delicious contrast between the unruliness of sound (much of the happy horn skronking is thanks to Afrobeat ensemble Antibalas and funk royalty the Dap-Kings) and the cool affectlessness of both their voices as every song bursts with the interplay of these two eccentrics' ideas. Four stars." St. Vincent is the stage name of Annie Clark, whom The Washington Post calls "a Bjork-like soprano who also happens to possess a digital armory of angular, fuzzed-out guitar licks." Proving that it takes two to tango, this ultra-creative collaboration includes the funky fun of "Weekend in the Dust," “Who," "The One Who Broke Your Heart," and "I Am an Ape" as well as the hope-filled yearning of "Optimist" and "Outside of Space and Time."

"'The Forest Awakes' lets Clark unleash her formidable fretwork over a relentlessly marching beat and strings and woodwinds … while 'I Should Watch TV sets classic Byrne observations ('How are you?"/"Not like me') to alternately jarring and jubilant brass. For all the braininess and wildness on display, there's also a sweetness to the album…. It's a remarkably catchy and concise set of songs featuring some of the most vibrant work that either one of them has produced."—All Music Guide
