Grimes - 'Genesis'

Biography

For those unaware, Grimes is the inventive work of Claire Boucher, a project that has gained notoriety since its inception back in early-2010. Moving to Montreal from Vancouver in 2006, she developed Grimes among the city’s burgeoning DIY scene; a scene where both punk ethos and pop music collide, resulting in a distinct sense of community, religiosity and psychedelic revelry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surreal March 14, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ambient, electronic, dreamy, chillout - different and artistic.
I wasn't sure I was going to like this, but it grew on me quickly.
Relaxing but gets my imagination going.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Gregorian Dance music February 27, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
This is a strange album, with an unusual sound, and yet very balanced and listenable. I have found no bad songs, no filler. It's at once ethereal, industrial, dark and danceable. Definitely not a flash in the pan, as Claire Boucher's other albums are also very good.
I came to know Grimes through a mention from Austra, another outstanding Canadian group. Both groups share a certain classical veneer to electro pop, but come from different angles.
Watch some of the videos too. These guys have a sense of humor!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enya on Steroids January 6, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
It does sound like a 1 woman show. Nonetheless, I like it. It has a variety of ethnic rhythmic tones to it and if you are in the mood for something a little different this music is worthy of adding into your versatile music collection. Can't stop playing 'My Sister Says the Saddest Things'. Kind of music I could play at parties and people would ask 'Who is this?'.

5.0 out of 5 stars utterly original October 29, 2012
By merzbow
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Brilliant debut. Take Aphex Twin, 4AD's back catalog, and near-fatal dosages of LSD and mix them in a blender. Apply an ear for pop ditties and you've got something not just out of left field, but out of Planet Earth altogether. And her next three albums are equally genius. Claire Boucher has a long, weird, career ahead of her...

5.0 out of 5 stars Parts Cocteau Twins, parts Aphex Twin September 24, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I like all 3 albums about equally (Visions, Halfaxa, Geidi Prime) even though Visions is the one I was introduced to first. Some parts of Halfaxa sound distraught, some parts ethereal, others ghastly. I still need to give it a few listens over to cement the songs in my head, but I can tell I won't be disappointed.

She's young but she's brilliant. I'm so lucky to not have died before getting a chance at hearing her works.
