On air: St Vincent brought an all-acoustic ‘MASSEDUCTION’ to BBC Radio 1

Ahead of her Brixton headline show, Annie Clark put a broken-down spin on her latest album.

St Vincent popped by Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show yesterday ahead of her Brixton headline show, bringing all-acoustic versions of ‘MASSEDUCTION’ to the airwaves.

The sleazy-synthfest of ‘Los Ageless’ got a totally upturned reimagining, along with a softer ‘New York’. She also covered The Clash’s ‘London Calling’ on the show, and apologised for her involuntary guitar-playing grunts. “I used to play in pubs for less than two people,” Annie Clark joked.

Listen to the show below. St Vincent plays ‘Los Ageless at 2:56, ‘New York’ at 13:05, and also covers The Clash at 18:10.
