St. Vincent: “Bad Believer”
St. Vincent (above), aka Anne Clark, unexpectedly scored the most successful album of her career - and a Grammy nomination - with last year’s release of her self-titled 5th album. Unexpected because Clark remains something of a fringe artist, not so much when you actually hear the album, undoubtedly one of the stand-outs of 2014.
Just released is a brand new song “Bad Believer” which will be featured on a forthcoming deluxe edition release of St. Vincent, which features four new songs and a DARKSIDE remix of “Digital Witness”.
The new tracks include recent US Record Store Day only single “Pieta” and “Sparrow”, and the previously Japanese-only track “Del Rio”.
Kate Tempest: “Bad Place For A Good Time”
London-based rapper, singer, poet, novelist and Mercury Music Prize nominee Kate Tempest is back with a haunting, stripped back new piano-led track about life in the city.
Last year, on top of releasing album Everybody Down - each track correlates with a chapter in his novel The Bricks That Built The Houses - without a doubt one of the best albums of the year, Tempest was selected for the Poetry Society’s Next Generation Poets. In 2013 she won the Ted Hughes prize for Brand New Ancients, her self-performed epic poem set to a live score.
Rap but not as you know it, Tempest oozes the brooding confidence that came from nowhere on Everybody Down.
