Grimes

It’s basically a #GirlCrush list from our dearest fairy-type princess.

Hampir 2 tahun berlalu sejak Grimes merilis album Art Angels yang masih menjadi salah satu album favorit kami sampai detik ini, dan bulan lalu, penyanyi asal Kanada bernama asli Claire Boucher ini sempat memberikan update soal album yang akan datang. Yup, she’s officially back to the studio untuk mengerjakan lanjutan dari Art Angels, yang dikabarkan akan memasuki lanskap musik baru yang berbeda dari album-album sebelumnya.

I know I’ve been quiet lately – in the studio every day trying to legit make something you’ve never heard before,” ungkapnya. “Unexplored sonic landscapes. I need another month or 2 of pure unadulterated creativity at which point I will begin finishing tracks. Won’t let u down,” lanjutnya dalam sebuah post di Instagram. Ia pun sempat menyebut jika ia sedang bereksplorasi membuat musik yang jauh lebih mengawang dan cantik dengan mood yang lebih meruang.

Sambil menunggu ia menyelesaikan albumnya, ia pun membagikan playlist Spotify baru dengan judul “the faé list” yang berisi deretan penyanyi perempuan favoritnya. We all know she got an awesome eclectic taste yang mencakup musisi yang benar-benar under the radar hingga pop komersial sekalipun, jadi tidak mengherankan jika playlist ini punya variasi musisi yang cukup luas, mulai dari Kali Uchis, Cardi B, Aristophanes, sampai Taylor Swift! Benang merah dari musisi yang ada di playlist ini, quoting Grimes herself, adalah “artist who write and/or produce their own shit”.

 

Starting a Spotify playlist. K had an edible before writing this so … its gonna be meandering—————–—–• In any case — obvïs missing a lot of artists/ songs on here but I plan to rotate it semi regularly, and for now trying to stick to recent ish releases —————–—–• Description: songs i love.. tryin’ to stick to independent artists, not always possible tho, and gnerally artists who write or produce their own shit. Artists I feel a kinship towards in some capacity. its a good energy for gaming or drawing in particular —————–—–•———-• Also creating my own genre cuz ppl always ask what my genre is. theres more to it, but this is the first paragraph of my manifesto haha —————–—–•————–—• “The fae are the children living at the end of the world, who make art that reflects what its like to live knowing the earth may not sustain humanity much longer. We live knowing that environmentally driven genocide is nigh, that the least equipped are to be struck down by the very earth itself. Repentance by the innocent for the sins of the rich. This does not mean that all fae art is directly about this, but that the influence of this reality is inescapable for the fae” @purityring @hanatruly and @nicoledollanganger have already joined me in our nu apocalypse subgenera link in bio
