    Today in Grimes' Claire Boucher looking like a badass:

    Grimes has premiered a music video for "Oblivion," a single off of her very well recieved Visions. I'm always a fan of music videos that aren't predictable visual accompaniments, and Grimes rocking out with a hot dog at a dirtbike expo can definitely fit that description. I would have expected your standard people-dancing-at-a-club fare, but this is way better.

    Watch "Oblivion" as Boucher with headphones and a boombox at McGill University recreational activities. It's fun to see her dance with dudes with painted chests who probably don't know/care about what's going on. Judging by the video, as well as her recent collaboration with Cadence Weapon, the girl's got some serious Montreal pride. "Oblivion" is a great single: dark without being brooding and danceable without being stupid. Check out the video, and her March tour dates below.
