Grimes Releases New Music Video and Announces Tour With Lykke Li

Grimes cannot read music and has no experience with theory or notation. However, she releases unique, melancholic, catchy weird pop melodies that are strangely addictive.

But don’t let her music background fool you…

Her 12″ Split with d’Eon entitled Darkbloom is out tomorrow, the Halfaxa LP is out now on Arbutus Records and a Sophomore LP is TBA. Grimes has also received rave reviews from BBC Music, Montreal Mirror, among other noted critics. Not to mention in May she begins a US tour with Lykke Li and released music video for “Vanessa”.

Spoon Announce U.S. Tour with Deerhunter

Last week another gigantic buzz album hit stores in the form of Spoon’s Transference (Merge). To celebrate the release of their record, the band is heading out on tour starting this March with friends, Deerhunter. Spoon will travel from Glasglow to California, and are also taking The Strange Boys and Micachu and the Shapes along with them with Deerhunter to takeĀ over as openers in the spring. The venues look pretty intimate for the tour, and very classy for the most part. Spoon will be hitting Radio City Music Hall when they come to New York City which is certainly a step up for the band who seems to get bigger and bigger everytime they release a new song.
