St. Vincent, a.k.a Annie Clark, sounds so much like Zachary Condon from Beirut, I’m starting to think they’re related.

St. Vincent has such a calming folksy sound just Condon, except St. Vincent likes to play around with distorted guitar, which is awesome in my book.

Of course, I discovered this little lady on Pitchfork, and then I checked out her MySpace. You learn to your delight, she employs some interesting electronic sounds in her ballads. My favorite hits on her page are “The Strangers” and “Now Now.”

She’s not flashy, but she’s enchanting when she starts to yodle in her songs.
