Well I never. This is the first ever entry in my new blog, Finding My Edge. Congratulations on being an early adopter!
Over the coming weeks and months, I will be posting my thoughts on the new albums that are floating my boat. Nothing too detailed or extensive, just a collection of honest reactions to the things that I think deserve a mention in the overcrowded world of new music.
Coming up soon will be a few words about 2016’s first truly great release, which is of course David Bowie’s Blackstar.
Until then, how about we kick things off by revelling in something brand new: the crazed, dystopian, Mad Max-inspired video for Grimes’ new single ‘Kill v. Maim’.
The video is directed by Claire Boucher herself, alongside her brother Mac. ‘Kill v. Maim’ is from her album Art Angels, released last November, and is one of the most darkly hyperactive earworms that Grimes has released to date. Anything less than this juggernaut of a video would have been a disappointment, frankly.
