St. Vincent’s latest album continues to push the boundaries of digital bass, thanks to the Minimoog work of Bobby Sparks and Adam Pickrell. The grinding, over-driven tones of Sparks and Pickrell are almost jarring on songs like “Rattlesnake” and “Birth in Reverse,” while they favor softer, traditional tones on “Prince Johnny” and “I Prefer Your Love.” A must-hear for fans of innovative synth bass.
