Have you started the painstaking process of assembling your personal āBest Albums of 2015ā list yet? Iām deep in the thick of finalizing my own, and Grimesā Art Angels is guaranteed to make my personal top ten list for the year. Described by the usual gang of music critics as everything from an avant-pop masterpiece to Album of the Year, itās pretty much a consensus opinion that itās a damn great album. Thankfully Grimes is releasing a cassette version for all us tapeheads. Itās limited, so pick one up before they disappear forever!
Cassette is slated for release on December 11th.
Spanning over 14 tracks, the new album features collaborations with Janelle MonĆ”e and newcomer, Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes. It was recorded primarily in her home studio in Los Angeles, CA, where she relocated to in 2014. Like all of her previous albums, āArt Angelsā was written and recorded entirely as a solo endeavor. The new album features more live instrumentation than ever before on a Grimes record. She plays piano, guitar and violin, continuing her evolution as a musician and a producer for her most ambitious album to date.
