Here's a good nudge to sign up for Nicolas Jaar's Other People "serial label": his DARKSIDE project's remix of "Digital Witness," St. Vincent's paean to vegetating and being vegetated upon via surveillance. Jaar and Dave Harrington grab the original by the collar and shake vigorously. The result: a workout pace is achieved against one of the band's signature stormy novacaine hazes, with Annie Clark's voice drooping over its tightly trimmed quantization.

St. Vincent's new self-titled album is out now via Loma Vista. We interviewed her, and combed through her pre-St. Vincent video history. '
