Around January of this year, I started listening to Grimes. Her music seeped into my pores, and I eventually bought her album “Visions” after having listened to its contents and that of her other albums a great deal online.
This woman could easily be one of the biggest pop artists of the next few decades if she breaks into the mainstream. Perhaps she’s too different for mainstream tastes, but I don’t think so. Either way, she’s already one of the most talented contemporary pop artists I’ve heard, and with a firm grasp of a lot of music from the past (just listen to her songs and you’ll can hear it for yourself), she’s pointing one way into a future with unique, new techniques and sounds.
