All teasing remnants of spring had seemingly passed and it was once more dreary and windy outside in Omaha, Nebraska. Show attendees were dressed in conservative layers as they made their way to the Sokol Auditorium, eagerly hustling towards the doors in fervent anticipation of the night’s events. I had chosen to ignore the bad weather and had opted for a bright white cutoff shirt with hazy splashes of color; the evening’s performers would be proud, I thought.
A small crowd had formed close to the stage as the sound check wrapped up and opener Noveller began her set. At once, I could see why she was paired with St. Vincent: her music, ambient guitar playing layered over manual loops that the artist created in real time, was ethereal and a touch bizarre, yet it required such precision to execute that I was dumbfounded to discover fellow audience members chatting through her performance. Unfortunately, it seemed that several of the people in attendance didn’t have the patience for Noveller’s unique one-woman show, though the majority of us were swept up by her soaring melodies and cascading loops which would sometimes crescendo with such intensity that the venue seemed to rumble and quake. A brief opening, however, saw Noveller exiting the stage after 5 songs, though they were all expertly styled and lighted.
Some time passed. A handful of us grabbed new beers and refilled our rum mixers. The crowd in front of the stage seemingly tripled, with new attendees wandering in right and left, all drawn in closer by the headlining act. And then finally, it began: a familiar 8 bit loop accompanied by some clever lighting flourishes as the backup band took the stage. The loop carried on, buzzing and thrumming as the star attraction strutted out and took center stage, all the while cooing the lyrics to “Rattlesnake”, the opener off of her latest, eponymous release. Immediately, a good portion of the crowd began swaying in time with the feverish, erratic performance, the thumping guitars and synth notes all creating a gorgeous foundation for St. Vincent’s impeccable vocals.
It’d be a crime not to mention the artist’s appearance as it was, in a word, flawless. With zany violet hair and stark, pale features, St. Vincent looked somewhat like a specter or ghost of sorts, her haunting image corresponding perfectly with the melancholic undertones of her songs. Her dress, a lovely white number with a brilliant splash of red down the front, hugged her figure and moved effortlessly with her as she paced the stage. All of this was further highlighted by the frequent use of deep purple lighting throughout her set. Her embodiment of a ghostly apparition had much of the crowd whispering and uttering elated gasps, though none could speak for too long as we were all too entranced by her performance.
The majority of the set was comprised of songs from her album St. Vincent though there were a few inclusions from past releases, most notably her hit song “Cruel” from Strange Mercy. St. Vincent tiptoed her way through songs, layering sounds and creating a musical build, all the while flailing her arms in a strange, endearingly robotic fashion between intricate guitar solos. As the show wound down, the audience had clearly not been fully sated, and we begged her to return to the stage. Return she did, for a generous three more songs, all very guitar-heavy which gave the performer a chance to flex her musical muscles. Afterwards, she introduced her bandmates (as “these human beings” no less!) and skipped – yes, skipped – off the stage. For several moments, everyone was stunned and nobody moved.
It was apparent that we had just witnessed true artistry. I can only imagine what her next album and tour will bring, and can easily guarantee that I’ll be in attendance.

We’re just a few short months away from summer and the only thing that could make it perfect besides some warm sunshine are new albums from some fantastic artists. From indie to R&B, there’s something new for everyone to rock out to this summer. So while laying in a hammock, grab those headphones, put on some new tunes and just let that summer sun warm your soul. Here are five artists with new albums to look forward to this summer.
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – “Only Run”
After a short break, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will be returning to the music scene with new album “Only Run” out June 3. Since the announcement of their new album, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah started circulating their first single “Coming Down” on the Internet. Featuring the all too familiar voice of The National’s Matt Berninger, “Coming Down” not only marks the return of the band but their return to an optimist outlook.
The Antlers – “Familiars”
Out June 13, The Antlers’ new album “Familiars” will be their fourth studio LP since 2011. Even though they released a few EPs since then, it’s about time they give us a complete album. On top of this announcement, The Antlers also debuted their video for their first single off “Familiars,” “Palace.” Recorded, produced and engineered in The Antlers’ Brooklyn studio, and mixed by Chris Coady, “Familiars” is set to be their best album yet.
Sam Smith – “In the Lonely Hour”
This U.K. import will release his debut album in the U.S. on June 17. Sam Smith has been dubbed the U.K.’s hot R&B artist of the moment, wooing people over with his voice since first appearing on Disclosure’s tune “Latch” in 2013. This album is sure to be a smash hit with Smith’s crooning finally front and center.
Azealia Banks – “Broke With Expensive Taste”
Since 2012, Azealia Banks’ debut album “Broke With Expensive Taste” began hitting one roadblock after another. Recently, Banks’ album got pushed back – again – to this summer. Rumor has it Banks has decided to begin leaking the album herself starting April 15. Keep your ears tuned because with a hit jam like “212” her album is sure to be incredible.
Wu-Tang Clan – “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin”
The most anticipated album to be released this summer is by far Wu-Tang Clan’s “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.” Granted, Wu-Tang Clan is also set to release another album before this one titled “A Better Tomorrow,” but the hype around “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” has been enormous due to one major difference between the two. One – and only one – copy of “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” will be sold. So what does this mean for the millions of fans across the world? You better start saving your pennies if you want to outbid others for this secretly made album.
