Montreal's Claire Boucher -- aka Grimes -- sent us her new Geidi Primes tape a while back, and while I somehow missed it until recently, it has quickly become an essential go-to late night jam. Some of these songs immediately bring to mind Nite Jewel's warped, distant bedroom dance-pop, but Boucher gets pretty dark and exceedingly weird at times, occasionally recalling Paavoharju's gorgeous, hauntingly fleeting otherworldly transmissions (see "Gambang"). Geidi Primes is out now on Montreal's Arbutus Records. Buy it on cassette here, and download it for FREE below:
