Ever wonder what your favorite artist has on their iPod (or iPhone… let’s face it, most people just use their mobile these days)? Well, now St. Vincent has given fans a look at some of her favorites songs with a Spotify mixtape.

The artist a.k.a Annie Clark put the playlist together for Santa Monica public radio station KCRW and Believer magazine’s The Organist podcast. In 10 tracks, she touches on everything from jazz (Nina Simone’s “Everyone’s Gone to the Moon”), to classic rock (David Bowie’s “Space Oddity”), to modern indie rock (Sufjan Stevens’ “Age of Adz”). There’s even a little “New Slaves” in there too, because what’s a mixtape without Kanye West?

During the podcast itself, she dove into her life’s musical journey and discussed her love for Steely Dan, her distaste for John Denver, and her reaction to Fiona Apple’s infamous 1997 MTV Music Awards speech. Clark even sang a few bars of some of her favorite (and least favorite) songs. Listen to whole the 16-minute episode over at KCRW, and stream her playlist via Spotify below.
