But, while it’s downloading, you can get a headstart by checking out her KEXP performance of “Genesis,” the second track on her excellent new album Visions. The performance is an interesting one, with Claire Boucher spending most of it crouched on the floor playing around with beats and sounds. But even from that position, she gets you feeling it.
Listen for: the slow build starting around 4:50, which finally releases at 6:58
Watch for: how she is definitely using an iPhone (look for it 4:45). If anyone else tried that, I would be hating on it hard. But Grimes, she pulls it off.
You can watch her perform two other songs, “Symphonia IX” and “Be a Body” over at KEXP.
