Grimes - Geidi Primes (2013)


/Leftfield, Indietronica, Glo-fi, Post-psychedelic electronica, New Weird Canada, Alternative, Avant-pop, Post-pop, Alternative dance/

Comment: one of the most beloved artists by the hipsters nowadays, the Canadia(e)n Claire Boucher`s 11-track issue pops up a mesmeric blend of shamanic beats and vowel effects, some epic rises and spaced-out harmonies being refreshing and thought-provoking throughout. Moreover, it is quite problematic to describe this album while it is imbued with unusual doses of spirituality and odd dodges. At times her high-octave "singing" reminds of Liz Fraser of Cocteau Twins, at times she takes fearlessly on Chinese/South East motives. In a word, it could be described as an instance of blessed-out urban shamanism.
