Grimes  - Halfaxa download album

Halfaxa is the second studio album by Canadian recording artist Grimes. It was released in Canada on October 5, 2010, by Arbutus Records, and re released in the United Kingdom and mainland Europe in May 2011 by Lo Recordings. The album itself is a cathartic exploration of a space or tone that Grimes has created with influences from medieval music, dark wave, opera, witch house and whale noises. Grimes has grown from her 2010’s debut Geidi Primes with something more bass heavy, dreamy and psychedelic. The name Halfaxa is a warped, Lingua Ignota inspired version of Halifax, a province in Canada.

Halfaxa is the sophomore album by the Canadian electro-r&b/synthpop/dream pop artist Grimes. For correct track titles, refer here.

Halfaxa is Grimes at her most mystical. Boucher has referred to it as her "medieval album" in terms of intent and subject matter. She once explained that the record is meant to be an electronic interpretation of Middle Age Christian reverence, an exploration of sensations beyond earthly experience: "I wanted to capture the beauty of being in a beautiful cathedral and hearing reverbed (naturally), devotional, vocal music and really believing in heaven and hell. Offering a deeper sense of Grimes' world, Halfaxa's song titles reference Boucher's diverse intellectual interests.

Grimes wades sometimes prettily and sometimes harsh- and intense-like through the album, succeeding in forming nice contrast; however, she is meanwhile unassured and disengaged throughout Halfaxa, simply drifting around the atmosphere, not quite finding solid footing. Therefore, she is perpetually detached from the music which might be intentional but can be disconcerting - even if unsurprising considering the fascination she has for unearthly spaces.
