Eternal thanks/love to Grimes for holding it down here all day today, coming through with a world record 16 posts about some of her favorite people currently making music + videos (and one of the best gifs of all time). Here's another lovely new track to end the night, taken from the "bonus track version" of Visions, which dropped today in North America on 4AD / Arbutus:

Grimes' revelatory new album Visions is out February 21 on 4AD / Arbutus, but you can hear the record now in its entirety over at NPR. Psyched I'm not the only one that heard that (probably nonexistent) Tiffany nod in "Oblivion".
Grimes is coming to TX...
Ramona Gonzalez of Nite Jewel recorded this starkly beautiful and touching version of one of the best Stevie songs, in honor of our good friend Yourstru.ly's beloved sister Lauren. Read YT's letter to Ramona here.

And if you missed it the first time around, here's Grimes playing another Vi
4AD just unleashed the next song from our early frontrunner for album of the year, Grimes' "post-internet" revelation, Visions. The beautiful/celestial future-pop jam "Genesis" has been a favorite in Grimes' live sets for a minute, and the LP version offers a glimpse at how far she's come since she sent us her (also great) debut tape almost 2 years ago:

Grimes has signed with 4AD, the home of Ariel Pink, Gang Gang, St. Vincent, et al. The esteemed label will release her next-level new LP Visions on February 21, 2012 in the States (and in Canada via Arbutus) and March 12 everywhere else...
