A TAV Curator’s Pick.

Grimes is the multimedia project of Canadian artist Claire Boucher.

She is best known for her work as a producer, singer and songwriter, although 'Grimes' also encompasses her work as a director, painter and writer.  In 2013 Grimes was named the Webby's Artist of the Year and was also awarded a Juno for Electronic Album of the Year for her third record, Visions.

Art Angels is the long-awaited follow-up to Visions, the 2012 breakthrough album from Grimes.

Recorded primarily in Claire Boucher’s home studio in Los Angeles, CA (where she relocated to in 2014), Art Angels was written and recorded entirely as a solo endeavour and features more live instrumentation than any Grimes record previous. Including guests Janelle Monáe and Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes, Claire’s evolution as a musician and a producer continues apace, helping her to create her most ambitious record to date.

The LP release includes fourteen art prints designed by Grimes. LP comes with free download code for album (excluding 'Butterfly'). – 4AD

“Art Angels is Claire Boucher's fourth record as Grimes and her most audacious yet: a gilded coffin nail to outmoded arguments that women in pop are mere frames for male producers' talents. These 14 tracks articulate a pop vision that is incontrovertibly hers, inviting the wider world in.” – Pitchfork
