St. Vincent’s 2009 album “Actor” feels like the point when Annie Clark found her unique lane with her musical project. Lush arrangements, ripping guitar work, big choruses and thoughtful songwriting — things we’ve come to love and associate with the mega indie-pop star. Her appearance on KCRW in 2010 is a confident and bold performance that features highlights from the early part of her career.
