grimes - Visions
Grimes seems destined for stardom, and deservedly so - her debut album for 4AD is that rare thing: an off-kilter pop album that actually delivers on its perky promise. Sticking closely to a louche but insistently funky electro-pop sound that variously recalls early Madonna and the New York new wave that she first surfed in on, Kate Bush at her most playful, and Nami Shimada's mega-selling Japanese proto-house anthem 'Sunshower', the Canadian scamp knows how to charm us senseless. The tunes, and the hooks that uphold them, are pure gold, and the production is lo-fi but clear of purpose: 'Genesis' is one of those tunes you immediately feel like you've known all your life, 'Space And Time' feels like it's been taped right off Chicago radio circa '87 and the chipmunk R&B killer 'Eight' bumps and claps in a manner that's knowing yet pure-hearted. It's a couple of tracks too long, but all in all Visions is a very special record indeed - recommended not just to the pop-pickers but anyone looking for some sweetness and light in the deep, dark trenches of 2012.
