Football, motocross, sandwich holding, boomboxes and shirtless frat boys. No this isn’t a flashback from my earlier years, but a video hodgepodge of American culture seen through the eyes of pint size songstress Grimes. Oblivion, off her fourth studio album Vision, is a technicolor escapade that makes you want to run through a poppy field with your hands flailing in the air. Then you stop to listen to the lyrics and start to see the multiple layers of the Canadian musician.
Unfortunately, I was stuffing my face with Mexican food while she was entertaining a packed tent at SXSW. I was finishing my last chip when I realized what time it was…..EFFF!!!! I was super bummed that I missed out on her set but thanks to YouTube I’m able to pretend I was there.
Turn your headphones up and make sure you check out the entire album. It’s worth the download!
