Like any good artist, singer Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, sets up interesting contrasts to put people, places and ideas into new contexts. Her upcoming record, Masseduction, hovers in the netherworld between two opposing forces and coasts. The sparse piano ballad “New York” is a straightforward and heartfelt elegy to a vanishing way of life: “New York isn’t New York without you, love/Too few of our old crew left on Astor.” Just as Clark is open and vulnerable on “New York,” she couches her divinations in a synthetic buzz of dance-floor electropop on “Los Ageless” as she purrs seductively yet sarcastically, “The lost sages hang out by the bar/Burn the pages of unwritten memoirs.” This performance, part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival, is the debut of St. Vincent’s new live show, designed by Willo Perron, who has done tours for The xx, Rihanna and Florence + the Machine.
