Published Apr 23, 2012Following Record Store Day (April 21), the special limited edition releases from the event are quickly making their way online. For those who were unable to get their hands on a copy of St. Vincent's seven-inch "Krokodil," both sides of the record can now be heard thanks to the powers of YouTube.
4AD previously released a statement about the RSD single, claiming that it "showcases Clark's aggressive guitar chops and marks a stylistic departure from Strange Mercy." Well, the warning rings true, as both the lead track and B-Side "Grot" show Annie Clark rocking out a little harder than usual, which is a welcome surprise.
Listen to "Krokodil" and "Grot" below.
