Grimes' next LP is slated for release in October. It's been tentatively announced for awhile now, having been scrapped altogether late last year.
Fader cover story on her here, where the release date was mentioned.
She's made it clear none of the singles she's released post-Visions will be on the album, and further stated they don't sound anything like the albums' tracks. I'm relieved by that, while "Go" grew on me I haven't dug the other songs she's put out this year. That said I'm still pretty anxious over whether I'll like the new album or not. I'm glad she's saying she's making it with no outsider expectations factored in though.
When I First heard "Home" I checked out Hollys other stuff and wished there was an entire album that sounded like that track. Judging by the preview track (which is fucking rad) thats what this album should be. Comes out may 19th apparently.
New Album: https://hollyherndon.bandcamp.com/album/platform
Canadian duo Megan James and Corin Roddick - aka Purity Ring - will return with a second album entitled 'Another Eternity’ on March 3rd.
Their 2012 breakthrough debut ‘Shrines’ was in many ways a prescient suggestion of indie and popular music to come. The album earned the #1 spot on iTunes electronic chart, Pitchfork “Best New Music” laurels and praise from New York Times, Rolling Stone, NPR and more.
While ‘Shrines' was composed remotely between Halifax and Montreal, 'Another Eternity' marks the first time Megan and Corin were able to create a record in the same room. The pair ventured home to the frozen industrial landscapes of their birthplace Edmonton, Alberta to document much of what was to become the album. Megan and Corin recorded and produced their follow-up themselves, as always.
With 'Another Eternity', Purity Ring trade the claustrophobic atmospheres of ‘Shrines' for wide-open expanses of sound. Between the brooding anthem ‘begin again’, the infectious ‘bodyache’, and the time suspending ‘stillness in woe’, the emotional geography of Another Eternity is wider than ever: gloomy valleys and gleaming peaks in equal measure. Megan’s vocals are in sharper focus as she details her lyrical universe of “sweat and dreams” populated by seacastles, rattling spines and weeping drawers. Corin's gift for evocative melody remains intact but his percussive skills and sense of composition have been refined and honed.

This guy seems to do some pretty gnarly drawings - similar to those which I would probably spend hours doing/concentrating on as a kid - to go along with his descriptive pieces about certain artists:
Have a nose around on his tumblr, plenty more artists are lovingly rendered (apologies if jazz)
