godot Please goddess don't let the rumors of an album with "real instruments" be true.
RedHood This was supposed to be on this last album, I guess she writes that it was a demo that was unfinished from 2013. She was gonna put it on her last album? But then didn't. I dunno I think it may have had something to do with her "fans" shitting themselves over that whole "Go" thing with Blood diamonds. I dunno I like when she does shit like this. Why you only do one thing?
Jet Bin Fever I still can't seem to get into Grimes, but I know a lot of people that adore her. What do you guys recommend?
godot The Claire Hamill album, "Voices" (1986). A random selection of Aphex Twin.
You'll never notice the absence of Grimes from your life.
Grimes is embraced because for three albums now she's shown a naive enthusiasm for EVERYTHING that was important in tangents to pop over the past three decades, and she's drawing it back into candy cotton confections. She has a good ear for pop hooks, even if her lyrical sense is dismal.
In an era where no major artist has had anything worthwhile to say about the real terrors we face for two decades, we give Grimes and the escapism she represents, a pass.
