St. Vincent "Krokodil" / "Grot"

St. Vincent 'Krokodil' / 'Grot'
Following 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.
