GRIMES / Visions 
Bizarro electro-pop artist Grimes makes her big label debut on 2012's Visions and shows she has something to prove.
A delightfully fun little mixture of '80's tinged synth-looped dance songs, flavored with the slightest hint of J-pop and psychedelic art rock. It has a great late night quality to it that conjures up images of ghostly pixies in an otherworldly florescent night-garden.
Had Grimes decided to lop off a good 10 minutes or so from this album, she'd have a pretty solid effort but after so long it begins to drag and loses it's hypnotizing allure.
