Just tree months ago, St. Vincent dropped one of the year’s best albums, and premiered it by playing it live from front to back at the Paramount Pictures backlot. As part of MASSEDUCTION’s conquering of reality, Annie Clark dropped by NPR to perform a few tracks for the Tiny Desk Concert series.

Stripped down, these renditions of “New York,” “Los Ageless” and “Slow Disco” cast an even brighter light onto MASSEDUCTION’s formidable emotional intensity. Watch the video above, then grab some tickets for an upcoming show or festival because, as is always the case with St. Vincent, this tour is a must-see.

Speaking of NPR, tune into KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic for another acoustic set on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 10 a.m. PST.
