Grimes – Genesis
Grimes – Skin
Well Grimes has blown up big over the past year, with good reason. Her experimental dark ambient pop and otherworldly layered vocals have resonated with the people of the Internet. But Visions surpasses her past work, combining the various strengths of previous albums Geidi Primes and Halfaxa. It’s crisper-sounding, the songs more concise, and has some great variety in its production. There are so many strong singles on here, including “Oblivion”, which was our #6 song of last year. You can buy the record straight from Arbutus.
