Grimes Vinyl, CD & tapes by Grimes at Norman Records

A larger-than-life figure whose brain seems to be running at twice the speed of most other people, Claire Boucher’s career as Grimes has taken her from the experimental fringe to the very centre of popular culture. What is more impressive still is ...read more »

Grimes
Miss Anthropocene

Grimes is back with her first album in five years and third for 4AD. Miss Anthropocene contains the singles 'Violence' and 'So Heavy I Fell Through The Earth', which you may have heard on t'wireless. It is the follow up to the brilliant Art Angels - an album so good that former Normanite, Robin, gave it a 9/10 review back in 2015. Features collaborations with 潘PAN & i_o on some proper pop bangers.

Grimes
Visions

While Grimes (Claire Boucher) has made some … let’s say odd choices in recent years, her eccentricities should not overshadow the quality of her music. There is arguably no Grimes release finer than 2012’s ‘Visions’, the project's third LP and the one that sent her star shooting into the stratosphere. A set of electro-pop tunes that balance cyberpunk sonics with ethereal wafts of vocal and some sneakily brilliant hooks, the years since ‘Visions’ was released have seen it frequently imitated but rarely bettered. Contains ‘Oblivion’ and ‘Genesis’.

Grimes
Art Angels

Grimes is back. Not that she’s been away really, but she certainly split some opinions when she released Go in 2014. With Art Angels she has turned away from the populist pop-trap fad and delivered 14 tracks of addictive leftfield pop. Featuring even more instrumentation played by herself as well as collaborations with Janelle Monáe and Aristophanes.

Grimes
Halfaxa

Halfaxa is the second record from Claire Boucher aka Grimes, originally released in 2010, before she became a tremendously big deal. It still has that home-grown vibe, with Boucher’s hazy productions coalescing around her remarkable vocals like a cloud. The feel is of woozy retreat, and it’s hard to resist. Reissued by Arbutus.

Grimes
Geidi Primes

Geidi Primes was Grimes debut LP released in 2010. Way before she was attracted to billionaire Elon Musk, she was making dreamy pop in her basement influenced by everything from dubstep to disco. It was the first of her recordings to make waves across the globe and, though not her best work, is a fascinating early taste of what would come later.
