Art Angels Accompany Grimes

grimes - art angelsVancouver’s Claire Boucher, otherwise known as Grimes, won the 2013 JUNO award for Electronic Album of the Year thanks to her last studio album, Visions. After releasing excellent electropop single “Go” (featuring Blood Diamonds), she gave us a taste of her followup album with an MV for “Realiti” which contained snippets of her travels in Asia. A reworking of that song plus many more appear on her newly released album, Art Angels. Its launch was preceded by a music video for spearhead track “Flesh Without Blood”. With the new album, Grimes has stepped over from the twilight zone of quirky concoctions into an area more accessible to the masses. The music retains her formula of combining angelic vocal ventilation with electronica but flows more fluidly through popular grooves and with enough variety to keep us engaged through the LP.  iTunes
