Watch St. Vincent Cover Sleater-Kinney’s “Modern Girl” in Pre-Show Warmup

St. Vincent tagged Carrie Brownstein in an extremely out of focus Instagram video where she’s covering “Modern Girl” off of Sleater-Kinney’s 2005 album The Woods. “Pre-show Sleater-Kinney warm up,” Annie Clark wrote in the caption. “Such a great song!”

Oddly, the blurry quality kind of enhances the effect of the video, placing the emphasis on Clark’s powerful vocals in her acoustic rendition. If nothing else, it inspires a listen to the original version.

Clark and her red beret were in sharper focus during Monday’s Tiny Desk performance.

Pre-show Sleater-Kinney warm up. Such a great song! @carrie_rachel

Perhaps Clark was trying to nudge Brownstein into finishing the new Sleater-Kinney recordings she recently hinted at.
