St. Vincent’s latest album lives up to the puns and wordplay inherent in its title, Masseduction, as the iconoclastic singer educates and seduces the masses with her most commercially popular work yet. Against a fizzy backdrop of pop electronics, St. Vincent invokes a litany of modern-day saints and sinners through occasionally arty lyrics that belie the album’s mainstream production. “I hold you like a weapon … I can’t turn off what turns me on,” the former Annie Clark declares amid the slinky electropop funk of the title track. She leaves the dance floor for occasional interludes on such intimate piano ballads as “Happy Birthday, John” and the enigmatic “Smoking Section.” The sarcastic, synthetic yearning of “Los Ageless” contrasts the more heartfelt intimacy of “New York.”
