Week 50: Grimes

Posted by jill on December 31, 2015

It’s funny how that about halfway through the year I commented that I didn’t listen to enough female artists, but since then pretty much every other week I’ve been blogging about a female act. This week is Grimes (was reminded of her via the Pitchfork end of year list).

I probably should have started listening to Grimes a lot sooner, but it’s also quite apt that I came across her work first drawing the alternate cover for my favourite comic series of the year. It’s a good summary of where my music listening has gone (e.g. a lot more innovation and experimentation in print than in music and comics providing better commentary on music than music itself). I like the airiness of the track. Along with last week’s track, maybe I should listen to more pop music in 2016.
