…a couple of weeks back I heard Grimes‘ first single “Genesis” and was enthralled. Now NPR is doing a First Listen of the entire Grimes record Visions and it is definitely worth streaming and dreaming to — go here. This record reminds me a lot of early 90s Cocteau Twins and Golden Palominos as well as having a really eclectic dance vibe that evokes the pop-art/prankster tradition of David Byrne and more recent examples like Gang Gang Dance.
Grimes is playing the Empty Bottle in March. I’m definitely going to check that show out.
Also if you are in the mood for a little more electronica or downtempo check out the latest All Songs Considered Podcast. Bob B. and crew have some excellent songs/tracks on here.
More playlists to follow this afternoon.
