First entry in new animated music series
St. Vincent, taking a break from her steady tour of late-night talk shows, gets animated in a new clip associated with FOX's cartoon sitcom Bob's Burgers. Vulture reports that the show, now in its third season, is launching a new musical series called "Bob's Buskers" that will feature several musicians covering songs from Bob's Burgers. An animator with the program then puts together a video of said musicians rocking out in front of the ficitional Bob's Burgers storefront. Annie Clark goes first in the above two-minute clip (the Magnetic Fields' Stephen Merritt will reportedly appear in a future edition). For the inaugural entry, the Strange Mercy star offers bubble-gum guitar work for a song from the season two episode "Bad Tina," in which Tina (voiced by Dan Mintz) befriends bad girl Tammy. The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time honoree gets some help from Bob's Burgers' Tina, who plays a pretty decent mop when she isn't busy trying on make-up or sneaking alcohol sips.
