Grimes and Blood Diamonds Have ‘Phone Sex’

+

Grimes is the leading light of the Montreal music scene, but that doesn’t limit her reach at all. Balearic/R&B producer Mike Tucker’s Blood Diamonds project is based in Vancouver, and “Phone Sex” is the result of what Pitchfork has Boucher describing as “a sleepless night in Mike’s room, sipping gin and reading Nabokov over the holidays in Vancouver.” The Phone Sex 12-inch will be out July 16 in the UK and July 24 in the U.S. on transparent plastic vinyl, but if your warm weather mood requires a house-ish groove before that, you can stream it below. Also, if you think that artwork up there looks familiar, it’s because it was done by Minneapolis duo Elite Gymnastics. You know you love them.
