I love everything about Grimes, the alias for 23 year old Claire Boucher.  One day she's just an artsy gothic hippie girl from Montreal, making ethereal electro-pop music in her bedroom with a keyboard, releases a few albums for free on the internet, and yadda yadda yadda she just got signed to 4AD and reveiws of her new album "Visions" are really good.

The past few days I can't get enough of the song "Oblivion."  I love the video too, especially because she looks so adorably weird, crashing the high school football game to make a music video.  :)

Here's another video for the song "Vanessa,"which she directed herself and stars her and her girlfriends. I heard she spent their small budget buying booze for them all.  (She sounds great singing this live, too.)
