Lo Recordings released the second Grimes album ‘Halfaxa’ in 2011.  The follow up album to ‘Geidi Primes’

We licensed the album from the Canadian label Arbutus Records. Sebastian Cowan who runs Arbutus was a key collaborator with Grimes and was her producer at the time.

Claire then signed to 4AD for her breakthrough album ‘Visions’

Here is our original press release …

“Grimes audio universe is one where Kate Bush jams with Fleetwood Mac in a flotation tank while the spirit of Arthur Russell hovers overhead. That’s not to suggest that the Grimes sound is all sweetness and light, there’s sometimes a dark undertow reminiscent of Salem. The same darkness that Julie Cruise tapped into so beautifully for Twin Peaks and like fellow warped pop maverick Autre Ne Veut there’s a touch of Prince flirting with the Cocteau Twins. But enough of this talk of other artists, the great thing about Grimes is that despite the influence of myriad styles including R&B, industrial, goth, hip hop and shoegaze, Grimes creates a unique sound world you can lose yourself in for days, weeks… a lifetime.”
