Grimes // Visions




The Answering Machine Messages are a mini-podcast that wittily connects big ideas and personal experiences to the biggest release of the week. These messages are a "reading" of a piece of music, not reviews per se. The podcast airs every Tuesday on Chicago Public Radio's Vocalo.org at 7 PM EST. Note: Jesse is the host of 'The Music Vox'.

Vancouver's Claire Bloucher records under the Grimes moniker creating a futuristic take on electro-pop, armed with solely with her laptop. She has in the past called it "post-internet", whether in earnest or sarcasm. Her newest album, Visions, is out today on 4AD Records.

In the podcast today, I discuss a different way for laptop music to be best appreciated - keeping in mind the newest by Grimes.
