St. Vincent (musician)
In a really great way, you simultaneously try to take up as little and as much space as possible.
Vincent quotes
I love the idea that something would be whimsical, and like "delightful", you know, but also disgusting — so I like this sort of, you know, a really gnarly guitar — really gross, disgusting guitar and then a — really a whimsical... — it's one of those things you can only describe in sort of awkward hand gestures and eye motions. Imagine!
Vincent
Honey the party went away quickly, but thats the trouble with ticking and talking.




Vincent St. (musician) quotes
While Jesus is saving, I'm spending all my grace,
on rosy-red pallor of lights on center stage.
While people have cheered on the awful mess we've made,
through storms of red roses we've exited the stage
Vincent St. (musician)
What me worry? I never do.
Life is one charming ruse for us lucky few.
St. Vincent (musician) quotes
Some songs I wrote that night, and some songs took nine months to arrange, get how I positioned them. Some songs I wrote parts of when I was twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen… Just putting it together, just finding the right place for it. So it's really been a long time coming. ... I'm actually really restless, in the sense that I'd rather be always making something new. I'm really excited about making a second record. I've got a lot of things up my sleeve, I guess.
St. Vincent (musician)
All your praying moments amount to just one breath.
Please keep your victory
But give me little death.
Vincent St. (musician) quotes
Let's pour wine in coffee cups and drive around the neighborhood
And shine the headlights on houses until all the news is good.
Vincent
You're a supplement, You're a salve,
You're a bandage, pull it off
I can quit you, cut it out.
You're a patient, iron lung.
Vincent St. (musician)
Her stage name was inspired by the hospital where Dylan Thomas spent his last hours. “It’s the place where poetry comes to die,” she said, joking. “That’s me."
St. Vincent (musician)
Now, now ...
You don't mean that say you're sorry
You don't mean that ... I'll make you sorry




St. Vincent (musician) quotes
What do I share?
What do I keep from all the strangers
Who sleep where I sleep?
St. Vincent (musician)
We are waiting on a telegram to give us news of the fall
I am sorry to report dear Paris is burning after all
We have taken to the streets in open rejoice revolting
We are dancing a black waltz — fair paris is burning after all.
Vincent quotes
Honey can you reach the spots that need oiling and fixing.
H E L P Help Me.
Vincent St. (musician)
I certainly owe a lot of awesomeness to blogs, to people who have been blogging about a show, or blogging about a single, or blogging about something. It's just amazing to me that it seems to be a nice equalizer. People don't necessarily need the clout of a big "record company machine" to put their face on a billboard. It seems more organic and honest in a lot of ways, for fans of music to be critics I suppose.
Vincent St. (musician) quotes
I like the material, which makes it easy to sort of delve into it, and then also I was too tired to be nervous. I was just happy. The anxiety, the anxious energy was not there, because I was too exhausted.
St. Vincent (musician)
If you want we could go somewhere else.
St. Vincent (musician) quotes
I'm a wife in watercolors I can wash away what seventeen cold showers couldn't wash away.
St. Vincent (musician)
Bodies like wrecking balls fuck, fuck with dynamite.
Vincent St. (musician)
I was recording with The Polyphonic Spree, recording The Fragile Army, and we were holed up in January in Minnesota at our studio. They called Mike in to play, and we just hit it off, in a really, really special way. Actually, the night after meeting and having a conversation with him, I sat down and I wrote "All My Stars Aligned". And I just kind of had an idea, "Wouldn't it be amazing if Mike Garson played? So the guy who played solo in Aladdin Sane, wouldn't it be amazing if this guy played this song?"
And I wrote it, based on a conversation we had, but I didn't want to ask him, because I felt shy, and nervous, and everything. It was a few months later, actually, we kind of got in touch, and, 'Oh, what are you doing?', and I sent him a couple songs that I was working on. I sent him "Your Lips Are Red" and I sent him "All My Stars Aligned", just to show, you know, 'wink-wink, hint-hint, this is what I'm doing.' And he wrote me back, the things that we'd said, and asked to play on the record. So I was, 'Well, okay, if you insist…'
That worked out pretty miraculously.
