Grimes Treats 'Geidi Primes' to Vinyl Reissue
Published Dec 21, 2015Since Grimes' album Geidi Primes was released in 2010, the experimental Canadian pop performer's stock has gone up immensely, and vinyl copies now go online for as much as $600 US ($839 CAD). Luckily for the songwriter/producer's quickly expanding fanbase, Geidi Primes is set to get a new vinyl pressing this winter.
As Modern Vinyl points out, various online listings (like this one and this one) reveal that the LP will be out on February 5 through Arbutus Records.
Geidi Primes was Grimes' first full-length, and it launched her career as a boundary-pushing musical explorer. In a 2010 interview, she told Exclaim! that her technical skills were so limited at the time that she recorded the album using only the white piano keys.
Meanwhile, vinyl copies of Grimes' sophomore album, Halfaxa, are also very expensive, so a reissue of that would be very welcome.
