I’ve been out walking

You’ve heard Nico’s These Days, right?

If you haven’t, you should. Go to Youtube and find the original right now…maybe here.

So, now that you’re familiar, press play on the video below.

St. Vincent’s voice is so crisp and so clear I feel it could cut my skin and I’d only want to hold it closer to me. My my is it a beautiful version – exemplified in the defining quiet she adds to the end’s ‘Please do not confront me with my failures.’

Achingly good.

  1. Good find.

    Nico’s ‘Secret Side’ is probably the song that plays in my head in the seconds before I wake up. Its a special song to me.

  2. Hmm, I seem to remember being the one to have shown you the twee croonings of St. Vincent, now you unleash it upon your virtual congregation without as much as a footnote for me. I kid, I kid.

    Anyway, I thought you may appreciate this and I don’t have your email anymore: http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/14524-final-boss/ Kuman Plaza has to be the most pleasant 8-bit composer I’ve heard, check his site for a free download of the album (and fall in love with the zelda theme remix finale).

    Kisses x
