St Vincent playing Dublin in November

The great St Vincent will be playing in Dublin on November 13th, at The Workman's Club, as part of a 12-date European jaunt. In the meantime, her new album Strange mercy comes out on 4AD on Sept 9th. Her band for the tour will be Toko Yasuda (Blonde Redhead, Enon) on mini moog, Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright) on drums and Daniel Mintseris (Marianne Faithful) on keyboards. Exciting eh? Any excuse (none needed really) for some St Vincent video action. Here are three Take-Away Shows shot by Vincent Moon in Paris for La Blogotheque in 2007.

Perched sideways on a railing on the street and still pulling off an intricate guitar pattern - what a woman she is.

I love the way she eschews the French kissing-on-the-cheek etiquette there, entering the apartment (you ain't kissing me...). But as for St Vincent reclining on a bed purring "Marry me", the less I say about that, the better, I think.

And apart from the woman's musical (let's agree to call it) genius, the camera kind of loves her too.

By the way, you can download the lead track, Surgeon, from her upcoming new album for free on this link. It's great, as you'd expect.
