St. Vincent gets her own brand of coffee
Following a nearly identical story in which former LCD Soundsystem James Murphy received his own blend of coffee from Blue Bottle, Chicago-based coffee company Intelligentsia has responded in kind by bestowing the same honor upon St. Vincent's Annie Clark. Clark's "Bring Me Your Mugs" blend, named after the SV track "Bring Me Your Loves," is available now via Intelligentsia, which Clark named her "favorite coffee shop." Check out our Recommended If You Like feature on St. Vincent as you enjoy a mug. [via Pitchfork]
