St. Vincent released one of the finest indie rock albums of 2011 in Strange Mercy, a sprawling blend of slick guitar riffs, moody synthesizers and keys, and flooring percussion. And to remind us all why we need to make sure we're paying attention to the woman known as Annie Clark, she just shared some footage of her and her band ripping through Strange Mercy highlight "Cheerleader" live in the 4AD studios. Check it out in the above video and just try not to be won over by those guitar chops.
