Annie Clark, otherwise known as the rocking musician St. Vincent, was the latest artist to appear on the online comedy network Above Average's Web series "Sound Advice." There Clark was subject to terrible career advice from "media coach" Janessa Slater, played by "Saturday Night Live's" Vanessa Bayer.

"Sound Advice" is in the same vein as "Between Two Ferns," and previous guests have included Drake, Haim and TV on the Radio.


In this episode, Slater is not convinced that Clark is not an alien. The "media coach" also advised that St. Vincent be involved in some sort of scandal: shoplifting from a drugstore, or perhaps not tipping the maids at a fancy hotel. Watch below, and read Salon's interview with Annie Clark here:
