Marry ME, Annie Clark; St. Vincent To Wed and Tour

An Open Letter To St. Vincent (a.k.a. Ms. Annie Clark):

Ms. Clark... or can I call you Annie?... Annie, I hope this letter finds you well. I'm sure your world is buzzing, what with the release of your debut album rapidly approaching on July 10. But then again, you're no stranger to the music biz (as we like to call it) after the release of The Polyphonic Spree's The Fragile Army, an album on which you played. As an aside, I do have to say I'm very glad you didn't drink the Kool-Aid that Jim Jones -- er, Tim DeLaughter -- had to offer. You're better off on your own than in that sea of robes, anyway.

But with releasing an album, doing press, and touring with Scout Niblett (!), I'll bet your life is going to be pretty hectic. Point being, I want to be your rock. If you accept my proposal and Marry Me, I can prepare us a warm, cozy home for you to return to when all of this brouhaha dies down. I'll water the plants and scramble the eggs, and all you have to do is sing me your beautiful songs when we wake up in the morning. You know what they say: "Behind every great female songstress, there's a great online music news writer." I know in the title track to your album you ask some "John" to marry you, but honestly, what does John have that I don't? An 'h' and an 'n'? Come on! And I know you have a thing for 'J' names, as proven by your work with SufJan Stevens.

Well, Joe here, and I'm ready to settle down. Hit me up.

Sincerely,

Joseph
