St. Vincent

St. Vincent's new album 'Actor' (4AD), released last week snagged the #90 spot on the Billboard Top 200 and #9 on the Billboard indie chart.

The album has been receiving rave reviews from critics with NPR describing it as "a surreal sonic wonderland" and last week's New York Times claiming St. Vincent's music "defies categories".

On May 19, 2009, St. Vincent will kick off a tour in support of 'Actor' with performances at Sasquatch!, Bonnaroo and All Points West and on June 24th she will make her network television debut on the Late Show with David Letterman.

St. Vincent will also tape a performance for Austin City Limits to air this fall on PBS.
