Future Nostalgia: Stream St. Vincent's Full 4AD Session

Future Nostalgia shines a spotlight on newer bands who, in our eyes, are on the cusp of achieving legendary status. These are acts we normally wouldn't feature, but feel so strongly about we just couldn't resist.

Check out our full review of Our Band Could Be Your Life, including St. Vincent's mindblowing Big Black cover

So yeah, we here at Fucking Nostalgic have a pretty huge crush on St. Vincent, a.k.a. Annie Clark. We've seen her absolutely tear up a Big Black cover at the Our Band Could Be Your Life tribute show back in May, and have had her excellent new album Strange Mercy (Spotify) on repeat since it dropped.

The good folks at 4AD have made her the subject of the tenth installment of their 4AD Sessions series, during which she showcased her virtuosity with live versions of four of Mercy's standout tracks: "Chloe In The Afternoon," "Surgeon," "The Year of the Tiger," and the title track itself. Check out the full session below - it's beautifully shot and totally mesmerizing - and find a way to see her at Webster Hall next week.

Fuck yeah I'm gushing.
