St. Vincent Doesn't Live Up to the Buzz

Ever-body has been all up in St. Vincent lately because of this new album coming out. Well, Well, Gorilla vs. Bear had an advance piece with a link to an MP3 download for a track on her new album and it just didn't do it for me. It's interesting in Bjork-y kind of way, but after reading that review, I'm thinking Beth Orton ... wow. Then I listen to "Now. Now", and I'm thinking, "Is that it?" On the basis of that one track, I'm probably going to have to lump St. Vincent in with Black Tie Dynasty and the other bands that I'd like to like but find I really kind of don't.
