St. Vincent

“Surgeon” begins somewhat tentatively before slipping into an elegant, Eastern-style mid section. Then the song smirkingly defies odds by exploding into quite the tantalizing second half jam, trembling synth solo and all. I always liked St. Vincent’s proggier left turns, so let’s hope her new record follows suit.
