I'd love to read it, is it floating about online anywhere? I didn't telepathically plagiarize you, promise! Such a great record.
Well, fair enough, that's your opinion. Mine differs though - DiS has been so supportive of ace female acts for years, from Laura Marling to Emmy The Great and beyond, with nary a mention of their sexuality. Plus, its prose, you know, but of a pastiche, as far as I can tell anyways. But yeah, each to their own.
For a start, I really don't see how this review approaches Annie as "a sexual being rather than a musician/artist". Secondly, even if it did, it'd be a valid framework to read Strange Mercy - it's an overtly sensual album, both musically and lyrically:
"You're all legs, I'm all nerves"
"I spent a summer on my back..."
"I've had good times with some bad guys, I've told whole lies with a half smile"...
It's impossible to discuss St. Vincent accurately without any kind of reference to the fact she is a strong, assertive female act who, yes, deals indirectly with sex in her music.
