Montreal producer Claire Boucher AKA Grimes is returning at the end of this month with her new album Visions, which is coming out on 4AD records worldwide except for her native Canada where it will be release by Arbutus Records, and promises to be her biggest and best release yet. In the past Grimes has been lumped in with genres like witch house, but with the early tastes of Visions we’ve received we can definitely say that she’s branched out.
“Genesis” is her newest track and is built around several layers of music, all of which are ear-catching, from the vocals to the beats to the ear-worm piano and glistening electronics. If this is a taste of what all of Visions will be like then we could just have the perfect late winter/early spring pop record on our hands.
Visions will be out on January 31st via 4AD.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
