Great, otherworldly stuff - synthy beats, ethereal vocals
on 24 May 2012
Excellent LP from Grimes, in many ways her best. It's more experimental, more expansive and melodic than Visions and Geidi Primes. Lots of synths, and some of the standout tracks spotlight unusual instruments, surreal Enya-like vocals, and not quite recognisable lyrics. Some pop ditties here, but not as dominates Visions. Reminds one of Area, The Knife, Broadcast, Hex, Lykke Li, Cocteau Twins, Kate Bush.
Great for chillout, low key nights with others, and as artmuseum spaceout.
Best tracks: dream fortress, sagrad, world princess, my sister. Definitely recommended, and repays repeated listens.
