“Bicycle” (MP3)

    “Bicycle” is the b-side on St. Vincent’s “Actor Out of Work” 7-inch. The 7-inch comes with a jacket that features Ms. Annie Clark, in all her curly-haired cuteness, staring wistfully off to the side; an expression that accompanies the slow-melodrama of “Bicycle” better than it does the frenetic “Actor Out of Work.” Clark’s virtuosic guitar work is replaced by some eerie carnivalesque electronics while she pines about some jerk who keeps talking her stuff, bicycle included. Hey jerk, stop stealing St. Vincent’s stuff.
