“Actor Out of Work” (Video)

     

    How uncomfortable would it be to have to flip-out, seated across from a staid, unflappable Annie Clark? That was the task put to the actors in this video for “Actor Out of Work” from Actor, St. Vincent’s follow-up to her 2007 debut, Marry Me. Despite the fact that it’s a music video, the setup still feels a little contrived, though it matches the song’s winding, bombastic feel. Also, that might just be the actors; they were ones who couldn’t find work, remember? [Pitchfork]
