Grimes at Governors Ball 2014 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Grimes

Grimes recently wrote a song with Blood Diamonds titled "Go" that was supposed to be for Rihanna, but when the pop singer turned it down, Grimes decided to keep it for herself and debuted it at Governors Ball. Now the studio version has been released and it's a big pop song (complete with an EDM-style drop) that you can definitely tell was written for a star. It's still got some Grimes-ness to it though. Check it out for yourself below. Not many details yet, but a new full length is in the works for Grimes too.

I have a Masters degree in composition from The Julliard School of Music. So it is without hyperbole when I say that this is the most harmonically advanced song that anyone has ever written, in the history of written music. 'Go' makes Mozart look like Rihanna.

Can't stand her music, but fuck people, she's French. She has french genetics and if any of you twerps ever decide to travel to parts of the world where french people live, about 80% of the girls look like this. Yes, it's another planet.. I know.. I know... but it is nonetheless the case.

Quit flexing your neanderthal understandings of how the world works and go live your lives.

Genuinely disappointed with this one. Geidi Primes and Visions had some unique off-kilter stuff (e.g. caladan, gris gris, circumambient), like LSD-era coil or furnace/TEOSP download with better vocals. This sounds like middling pop. Still holding out hope for the LP tho.
