Exactly. And also with translating it to live performances. I find her music deep & dreamy, so when I listen to it, I usually have something in my imagination that, of course, isn't in the video. And I don't mind.
And when it comes to live, I also don't find Grimes as somebody who can make the magic while performing (whether it's making that magic I feel while listening to the audios or the atmosphere a singer makes at a concert, when everybody's singing). But I guess she has to earn some money too

Make Music festival? I'm going to that too!

Grimes is my latest musical obsession. A couple of friends recommended I give her a listen and I instantly fell in love. Truly exquisite music. I feel like I'm walking through a forest... in space.

^ did you see her performance yesterday??
Such a good show... 5-song show anyway but still.. her voice is amazing live, and I thought it was hilarious how all the guys in the crowd were totally smitten by Claire while the girls want to be Claire ... I wish things hadn't gotten tense so she could've at least played another song.
Hoping to see a full set in October

I'm now craving blond extensions. The Grimes complex getting to me too.

Still hoping to see her in October.. the XX are playing on the same date and apparently it's a no brainer. I hope to find someone that does prefer to see Grimes instead.

I have to agree about her having difficulties translating it all to visuals, i find most of her videos contrieved and awkward too,that said, i quite like the last one posted (genesis). Its weird enough for me to kind of like it

I'm somehow wanting that icy blonde hair color
Was I the only one getting a Sailor Moon vibe from her look in her latest music video?

Oh, that sucks they're both playing on the same day, but likewise, I'd rather opt for Grimes than the XX. I'm now furiously debating whether or not to attend her concert in Oct.

I've already seen the XX and Grimes live, and while I prefer the XX (musicwise), it's something I prefer listening to in my room with headphones. If I wanted to go see a show with friends between the two, I'd choose Grimes.

^ I can see that but admittedly I didn't watch the video all the way through.

Wow, seems like a lot of us are going to see Grimes in October. I can't wait, I'm seeing her in a very small, intimate venue so it should we very good.

I saw her once last year at the New Museum in ny, then I saw her again last week at a free show on the hudson river which was really cool! I really liked her set and seemed like she was having a good time. I agree about the editing though, there was one song that was pretty terrible, totally cheesy and boring. I think she's become pretty popular really fast and her live show and visuals will take some time to really synch up and be as refined as her sound. But overall still think she's fun and the music and her style is interesting. I read somewhere she built a boathouse with her bf and sailed down the mississippi?

^ hauntingly beautiful .. the kind of sound I always associated with Montreal for some reason, influenced by Constellation Records artists I guess.

The song is slightly similar to Skin right? (except Skin's nowhere as raw). Wish she played some of that stuff live.
