This will in no way be an impartial, objective preview.
I was ready to name Grimes‘ latest effort Visions the “Best Album of 2012” after I heard it for the first time. I was ready to bestow the title of “Best Music Video of 2012” on her video for Visions stand-out cut “Oblivion”.
For my money, Grimes is making some of the most intriguing music today.
Seriously, just watch the “Oblivion” video, below. I’ve showed it to at least 20 people at this point, and they’re all massive Grimes fans now. So I’m doing the same for you.
Grimes performs at the Treasure Island Music Festival this Saturday, October 13th at 2:15pm on the Tunnel Stage.
