Last week I heard Grimes music in a fancy coffee shop on Lafayette Street. It sounded great. Sometimes I mistake her music for other peoples, and vice versa. This happened with Air France, Gus Gus, and something else. Elliot Smith? Rhianna? Before I interviewed Grimes, I went to an art show she had curated at an art gallery in New York. There were these cool watercolors that reminded me of 90's paintings of pixies: pictures of fairies? The girls weren't pixies or fairies, they were from real life, their eyes were black and they were crazy. I wondered if they were from Montreal. I remember one of the girls in the paintings had bangs and I wondered if it was of Grimes. Have you seen that video of Grimes where she is running around a stadium at some motorbike show? Her hair is pink with bangs and she has this cool gold and black hoodie skeleton gloves and these huge headphones on? She looks so good in it, and it's really fun watching her run around and have a good time. I think I have watched that video 20 times now.
