Other recordings by this artist

Grimes - Visions
A stark new development in the Grimes sound, 'Visions' is a glacial, pristine set with Claire Boucher's near-falsetto vocal floating spectrally over glistening synths and brittle rhythms that nod to the golden age of UK synth-pop and dance music. Influenced by Enya, TLC and Aphex Twin, among others, Grimes is at the vanguard of a growing new breed of alien pop that's hacking at the boundaries between the mainstream and leftfield electronica...

Grimes - Geidi Primes
'Geidi Primes' is where elegiac pop meets rickety folk/acoustica and electronica, with synths and lo-fi beats backing Claire Boucher's clouded vocals. Think Nite Jewel meets Broadcast with a little of that ghostly Balam Acab atmospheric. It has a strange air of being created unconsciously while the artist herself was asleep. It is a vastly intriguing set of pop tunes highlighted by its amazing fifth and sixth songs: “Avi” and “Feyd Rautha Dark Heart”, which are each frighteningly reminiscent of an unaccountable psychic experience you may have never had. As an album, it touches on many different tones without exploiting any. It manages to be playful without being precious, clean without being sterile, cryptic without being obscure, and operates in a deceptively complex melodic structure without calling attention to the artistry therein.

Grimes - Art Angels
Spanning over 14 tracks, 'Art Angels' features collaborations with Janelle Monáe and newcomer, Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes. It was recorded primarily in her home studio in Los Angeles, CA, where she relocated to in 2014. Like all of her previous albums, ‘Art Angels’ was written and recorded entirely as a solo endeavor. The new album features more live instrumentation than ever before on a Grimes record. She plays piano, guitar and violin, continuing her evolution as a musician and a producer for her most ambitious album to date.

Grimes / D'Eon - Darkbloom
Split EP between Grimes and d'Eon, originally released in 2011, featuring Grimes' first hit single – “Vanessa”. A joint release by LA's Hippos In Tanks and Montreal's Arbutus Records, the Darkbloom EP is a thrilling split by d'Eon and Grimes. Harnessing the dark energy of her sophomore album Halfaxa, along with the shimmering dream pop of her debut Geidi Primes, Grimes’ side represents a synthesis of her two sonic personalities. Displaying a level of clarity and craftsmanship heretofore unseen in her releases, Boucher presents a stunning new collection of ethereal dreamscapes that expand her creative palette without compromising the spectral presence she is known for. Following the Middle-Eastern-tinged R&B of 2010’s Palinopsia, d’Eon broadens his stylistic breadth through reference to a number of electronic genres – for example, he simultaneously incorporates elements of Chicago footwork and new jack swing, but surprises the listener with strange forays into bygone genres such as UK drum and bass and trip hop.
