First, St. Vincent's album Marry Me dropped this past week. The former Polyphonic Spree and Illinoisemaker will be opening for Sufjan Stevens in Europe. (I'd get on the bandwagon now while there's still room.)
Second, Nellie McKay is releasing her third studio album, Obligatory Villagers this November, according to her website. Last year's incredible album put McKay on a very positive trajectory. We'll be sure to keep you updated if any tracks leak. And they will.
Just remember, you heard it here first.
