Need a Tuesday morning pick-me-up? Grimes has you covered. Claire Boucher has put together a new Spotify playlist called “the faé list,” which features artists “who write and produce their own shit”.
Confirming what we already knew - that Grimes has a bloody brilliant music taste - the playlist features the likes of Kali Uchis, Mitski and Phoebe Bridgers.
“Starting a Spotify playlist,” she wrote on Instagram, announcing the new series. “K had an edible before writing this so … its gonna be meandering————————-——• In any case — obvïs missing a lot of artists/ songs on here but I plan to rotate it semi regularly, and for now trying to stick to recent ish releases ————————-——•Description: songs i love.. tryin’ to stick to independent artists, not always possible tho, and gnerally artists who write or produce their own shit. Artists I feel a kinship towards in some capacity. its a good energy for gaming or drawing in particular ————————-——•—————•🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
“Also creating my own genre cuz ppl always ask what my genre is. theres more to it, but this is the first paragraph of my manifesto haha ————————-——•—-——————• “The fae are the children living at the end of the world, who make art that reflects what its like to live knowing the earth may not sustain humanity much longer. We live knowing that environmentally driven genocide is nigh, that the least equipped are to be struck down by the very earth itself.
“Repentance by the innocent for the sins of the rich. This does not mean that all fae art is directly about this, but that the influence of this reality is inescapable for the fae”
Phew. Hopefully you got through that alright. Listen to ‘the fae list’ below.

As January draws to a close, things are shaping up very nicely for a host of world-beaters to make their return with huge new albums this year. Here’s all the goss.
The track appears on Bring Me The Horizon’s new album ‘amo’.
Bridging the gap between her past as a witchy, evasive producer and future as a creator of sugary pop songs, ‘Visions’ was Grimes’ turning point, a portrait of an artist in flux and finding her feet.
That is a very Grimes thing to do.
