St. Vincent Gives Us Twin Peaks Realness on Colbert

    Following the release of her strange, gooey "Los Ageless" video on Tuesday, St. Vincent appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night. She performed the track "New York" off her new album, Masseduction, changing the lyrics "You're the only motherfucker in this city who can handle me," to "You're the only other sucker in this city who can handle me" to be appropriate for network television audiences.

    For her set on Late Night, the musician brought along some very St. Vincent-esque staging and props, all of them vaguely creepy and David Lynch-ian. And of course, Annie Clark appeared decked out in a bright vinyl dress and leopard print, belting out the lyrics to "New York" with total vocal precision.

    As a web exclusive, The Late Show also taped Clark performing "Los Ageless", presumably after a costume stage. Considering the staging for this track was a little more risque, it's no wonder it didn't air during the actual show, but I doubt The Late Night producers could resist letting such a good song and such a potentially internet-smash worthy performance go to waste. Clark's performance for "Los Ageless" is equally as good as her performance for "New York", if not a little better. We get to see her rip into her guitar a little, and she looks more comfortable with the instrument in her arms--a little more badass, too.
