Sunday Matinée - Celebrating Sunday's with a live clip: St. Vincent - "Marrow" on Letterman

When looking back through the archives I was suprised we never used this one already for a Sunday Matinee. Pretty classic performance of "Marrow" by St. Vincent on Letterman in 2009. During her touring for her previous album Cruel, Annie Clark performed with a full brass section but has since then simplified her band to about 4 people, mostly drums, guitars and synth. That being said, though her current lineup has an interesting sound, the full power of a brass performance such as on this track is a bit lost.

 This is a pretty great live performance, especially for something broadcast on a late night television production.
