I love Oblivion, and the album cover is ace so I might buy this album.

 

On the flipside, I hate the video for Vanessa. Such a talented musician, doing silly attention seeking stuff with facepaint.

 

Maybe I'm just bitter?

I read an interview where she said the budget for Vanessa all went on booze so I think the video was most likely her just having fun with her friends, nothing too calculated imo.

okay, fair enough.

 

i just hate stupid facepaint hipster art. facepaint is the stupidest most immature thing ever.

 

but Grimes seems pretty cool.

I also don't like everything she has released so far. Wasn't impressed on boomkats review of her first album. Maybe it's her voice I can not hear long enough…………

Album is wonderful. Just really pure. Even better than I had hoped it would be.

 

Interviewed Claire last week and she's the most charming, down to earth person. Just really genuinely excited about making music and being creative to the fullest extent she can be.

Just finished listening to Visions and Grimes is definitely my favorite track off of there. Highly recommended album. 2012 is off to a strong start in terms of releases.

The rest of the album unfortunately doesn't quite measure up to the awesomeness of Oblivion and Genesis, but this is still a damn fine album. Her best effort yet and really great for someone so young. I saw her perform over the summer and she does seem like a genuinely sweet girl.

I wish I could find the Grimes interview I read that convinced me shes completely retarded.. had a look and couldn't find it again. but she threw a fit about being compared to Kate Bush, obviously totally ignorant to what an awesome and generous compliment that is. then she bragged anout having only recently getting garage band and trying to make tunes, as if her inexperience gave her an edge over people who had cared about music longer than her.

then she mentioned loving the Wire, and the interviewer was like "ooh shit how far are you into it?" and she goes "Oh I just watch episodes."

wtf????

 

but then she IS from Toronto right? maybe the most creampuff clown pit ever as far as musicians go

Jesus, being compared to Kate Bush is not bad. Hey, Bush has done a few really excellent albums in the beginning- HOL is my favourite til today. How can you be angry over such an comparison?

 

I just watch episodes :emb:

Why she kicked off is because women are constantly compared to their other female counterparts, the media doesn't allow female producers to be 'their own' person or to have the music stand on its own merit.

      So recently I got a request from a user if there is a possibility to do a Kickstarter similar to the Caustic Window LP we did back in 2014 for Tom's "Methyl Orange" LP, a 2x12" whitelabel apparently only given to Richard, Chris Jeffs, GWC, and potentially a few other mates. Was destined for MEN Records (a Rephlex sublabel) back in 2003 but never saw the light of day.
      Wait - what? "Methyl Orange LP"? I'd never heard of it until now...
      So, a bit of Googling (you get a lot of science-y stuff if you just Google "Methyl Orange"), and I did find where I am assuming Tom played these tracks live for WARP20 and keyfumbler posted it to Mixcloud:
      A comment on the Mixcloud page seems to indicate this set contains tracks from that LP, and Richard has played some in recent live sets:
      Anyone have more info? I would like to know a bit more, and the possibility of a Kickstarter is highly unlikely, but I'd like to know more.

      I’m not sure if a release date has been announced yet, but this video just dropped today ...
       
      I’m not blown away by it but I can’t help to have my hopes up (a little bit) for this next release being better than Art Angels.
      We’ll see.

      Hi!
       
      I’m Timi Alexander, a 23-year old Finnish singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist living in London, and I'll be releasing my debut solo album on Soundcloud and Spotify within a week or two. The record takes influence from the 90s alternative rock and hip hop production (Liquid Swords is a big inspiration on the skit-like nature of the album flow), a combination that will further be explored on the future releases, as well as Aphex Twin. I've performed and produced all the music in my bedroom, an environment I've found surprisingly inspiring over the course of the making of the album.

      In case you're interested, here's a Dropbox mp3 download link to the (yet) unreleased full album:
