Grimes - Geidi Primes
'Geidi Primes' is Grimes' debut LP and it's re-released on vinyl for the first time in nearly six years. Grimes makes a special kind of weird pop which is far removed from any of that of her peers and extremely broad in it's references. Frequently beautiful, melancholic and scary but always immediate, her tracks are a peculiarly accessible mix of Broadcast, Bjork, Kate Bush and the codeine heavy beats of Nite Jewel. Her debut record 'Geidi Primes' is the synthesis of this unconventional, genre-bending approach to music. 'Gambang' is led by a playful sample and Boucher's chameleon like vocals; the melancholic 'Venus in Fleurs' pairs a post-rock guitar line with a salem-style low end; and album standouts 'Avi' and 'Fyed Rautha Dark Heart' offer up two supremely catchy pop choruses.
