MP3 of the Day (and more!) #479: Grimes

By on Monday, 23rd January 2012 at 10:00 am

I discovered soft-spoken musical visionary Claire Boucher (aka Grimes) through her support slot with Lykke Li last spring (review here) and I’m so glad that I did. About time that a woman stepped out and turned solo electronic music on its head (translation: enough of that James Blake bloke already).

The Canadian has just signed to 4AD and will be releasing her first album with them, ‘Visions’, on 21 February in America. (The UK release will follow on the 5th of March.) To get your interest piqued, she’d like you have this track, ‘Genesis’, for absolutely free. And one better, there’s a visual to go with this post too: you can see Boucher performing the track in the video below.
