Grimes, on this week's edition of Haze World!

"The first hour of Monday's Haze World will feature a mixtape by Grimes, (née claire boucher) whose second album halfaxa is out now on Montreal label Arbutus. When I wrote about it in August, I described it as "a cavernous landscape of bassy 4ad surrealism and industrial pitchbent r&b", and that's pretty much how the mix sounds - if you added all of the tracks together you might approximate the album's tone, riled-up and half-asleep with nowhere to go.
