    Have not had a chance to listen yet, but I will because I like St. Vincent and not just because she named an album Marry Me due to her fandom of Arrested Development. However, I did recently see in the comments of a different TFT episode that you guys may be getting to 90’s music this summer. So, the question is, who gets to Jagged Little Pill first: Your music podcast, or my 90’s pop culture podcast?

      You’ll almost certainly beat us to Jagged Little Pill. We’re picking up our historical march in the 70s and will do about 3 months. It is possible that we’ll make it up to the 90s, but I wouldn’t be shocked if we switch back to contemporary music before we get too deep into the 90s.

      I agree about the awesomeness of “Marry Me” as an album title. She really used her allusion!

    The dude from The IT Crowd is Richard Ayoade (I-O-Ah-Day) and, I believe, the woman from Dilbert is Cathy. Also, things would be much simpler if Annie Clark just called her backing band The Grenadines.

    As for this album, while I appreciate St. Vincent’s desire to explore different sounds and ideas, Clark is also diverting from what I find interesting and enjoyable about her music in the process. I watched her playing with the surviving Nirvana members when that was a thing that happened, and it made me long for a different sound. Eventually, I bet she has a “back to basics” record that I will appreciate. I shall wait for her to return to my shores.
