St. Vincent's Actor Set For May 5 Release

4AD has announced the release date of St. Vincent's sophomore release, Actor, and, as the header to this post implies, we can expect the disc about two and a half months from now.

The disc, produced here in Dallas by The Paper Chase's John Congleton, also features North Texas musicians McKenzie Smith and Paul Alexander (both of Midlake) and Jeff Ryan (of Pleasant Grove and currently performing with Sarah Jaffe).

No music from the disc appears available yet, but Chris Cantalini of the Dallas-based Gorilla vs. Bear blog does have the scoop on the fairly stoic cover art. Check it out.
