Grimes is teasing a new song. She just posted an advertisement on her Instagram that’s part of her new campaign as the face of Stella McCartney’s Adidas line. The ad contains a snippet of new music. The post says that the first single from Miss_Anthropocene will be out on 9/13. If this is … More »
Back in 2016, Grimes appeared in dreamy commercials and editorials as the face of British designer Stella McCartney’s POP perfume. Now, she returns in the fall Adidas by Stella McCartney campaign. The forthcoming collection is centered around sustainability with eco-friendly fabrics. In a statement, McCartney says that Grimes is “the perfect … More »
The rush that comes with a perfect pop song is elusive but unmistakable. “Pop music” can mean many things, but there’s a certain kind of monster jam that scans as POP MUSIC in neon lights, the kind that sends euphoria coursing through your nervous system and launches your body onto the dance floor.

Less than a month before the would-be third edition of SunSoaked music festival, Kaskade has confirmed that his beachfront brainchild will not be returning to Long Beach for its scheduled two-day run mid-July.
“…At a little less than three weeks out, it’s become obvious to me that we are falling short, and I’ve been left with an impossible choice,” reads a Kaskade-signed announcement via the festival’s homepage.
Kaskade was expected to headline the July 13-14 2019 iteration of the festival, alongside Maryland-born rapper, Logic, who, with the backing of Live Nation, was helping champion the festival’s production this year. Canadian singer/songwriter Grimes and Detroit’s Quinn XCII also topped the 2019 ticket. SunSoaked began in 2017, nearly tripling in size for its sold-out follow-up in 2018.
Though Kaskade has yet to expound on the particulars hindering the event, ticket-holders are expected to be fully reimbursed with no action necessary on their parts, per the announcement. With the festival front, an invariably volatile market as it is, more saturated than ever, SunSoaked is one of many promising festivals in recent years to officially fold. But discernment and transparency have certainly proven far more favorable in the long run on organizers’ behalves.

Grimes is making a new album. It’s called Miss_Anthropocene. She announced it on Instagram last month. It’ll be her first since 2015’s Art Angels, which was a great album, even if Grimes herself doesn’t think so. But lately, Grimes has been doing a lot of things that don’t seem … More »

New Album: Grimes – Miss_Anthrop0cene 1. mis·an·thrope noun: a person who dislikes humankind and avoids human society. 2. Anthropocene: The Anthropocene is a proposed epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on the Earth’s Geology and ecosystems including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change. ———————————— Just fount out my first interview in a few years is coming out tomorrow. I thought the writer was quite smart so hopefully it’s accurate haha. But just in case (cuz I’ve had some p fucked press drama this year) I’m announcing album here first: ———————————-It’s called Miss_Anthropocene. It’s a concept album about the anthropomorphic Goddess of climate Change: A psychedelic, space-dwelling demon/ beauty-Queen who relishes the end of the world. She’s composed of Ivory and Oil (I’ve done some illustrations of her if you scroll down my instagram). ———————————-️ I love Godly personifications of abstract/ horrific concepts (For example, Mars as the Roman God of War) — so I wanted to update the list to include our modern issues. ———————————- Each song will be a different embodiment of human extinction as depicted through a Pop star Demonology. The first song ‘we appreciate power’, introduced the pro-AI-propaganda girl group who embody our potential enslavement/destruction at the hands of Artificial General intelligence. ———————————- It’s possible I will drop an EP or a few more singles of synth-based stuff b4 the album because its mostly ethereal nu metal (ish), and I know a lot of ppl miss the synths and whatnot. ———————————- Climate change is something I’m only ever confronted with in a sad/ guilty way…. Reading news and what not… so my goal is to make climate change fun (lol..??)…. uhhh… (I mean, everybody loves a good villain… re: the joker, Queen Beryl).. so maybe it’ll be a bit easier to look at if it can exist as a character and not just abstract doom. ———————————- More musique soon! <3

Grimes released her masterful last album, Art Angels, back in 2015. She’s been working on its follow-up LP for a while now, and so far we’ve only heard the 2018 single “We Appreciate Power.” Last week, she released a standalone “demo” called “Pretty Dark.” Now, Grimes has … More »
