The Jimi Hendrix Experience — Hendrix in the West / Winterland

How many different versions of ‘Hey Joe’ do you need to hear, really?


Rock

I’m absolutely, totally, 100 percent, completely in support of reissues. There is great music in the past that often gets neglected or forgotten once the generation that popularized it ambles a few years into their first mortgages.

VOTD: Rah-rah, St. Vincent boom-bah!

Watch ‘Cheerleader,’ the new clip from Tulsa-born Annie Clark, on whom I may or may not have a gargantuan crush.

My great enthusiasm for St. Vincent singer Annie Clark’s demure looks and freaky, Frippian guitar playing is well-documented, even by certain competing Oklahoma music-culture blogs. I'm glaring at you, Lang.

Here, on “Cheerleader,” director Hiro Murai chains an oversized Clark up to a display in an art museum. She falls apart, however, which kinda keeps in line with self-destructive themes explored previously in the St. Vincent catalogue. Interestin’.

St. Vincent plays Cain’s Ballroom on May 15.
