we asked claire/grimes, author of some of the most hauntingly beautiful music in recent memory, what she’s been listening to lately, and her picks show inspiration coming from some very diverse places, but somehow making perfect sense:
grimes – weird magic mix (mixed by rezzie) – [download as zip]
01. Prince – Computer Blue
02. Hamza – Wassila
03. Doldrums – Thinking of This snippet
04. Katy B – Louder
05. Blue Hawaii – Dream Electrixra
06. Seany Mac – One of Those Days
07. Tadeo – Bateria Lup!
08. Aretha Franklin – I say a Little Prayer
grimes’ split w/ d’eon is out today on hippos in tanks / arbutus records: buy here or stream the full thing below. her glorious halfaxa lp still available for your chosen price. both include “vanessa,” check the self-directed video below. grimes’ current live set consists of all-new material and the last few times we’ve seen her (incl. at our own sxsw show) we’ve been blown away by the new stuff. what a talented lady.
