Last week, Dallas native Annie Clark (aka St. Vincent, duh) released the above video for the third single off her pretty darn awesome, May-released album, Actor, "Laughing With A Mouth Of Blood."
And it's pretty brilliant, too, enlisting the help of Thunderant, the comedy duo featuring SNL vet Fred Armisen and Sleater-Kinney guiatrist Carrie Brownstein. A continuation of Armisen and Brownstein's ongoing "Feminist Bookstore" series of sketches, this video features the bookstore owners hosting an in-store performance from Clark. And, of course, hilarity ensues. Check it out.
