XLR8R Couldn't find the embed function for type: "vimeo" and source: "<iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/23509540?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0" width="530" height="298" frameborder="0"></iframe>".

In case the litanyofposts in recent weeks didn’t make it clear, XLR8R is in severe danger of developing a full-blown crush—entirely musical, of course—on Grimes. This new clip for “Crystal Ball” certainly isn’t helping matters. The track is taken from her split 12″ on Hippos and Tanks with fellow Montreal avant-pop auteur d’Eon, and its accompanying video finds Grimes walking her pixie-ish self through a barren, snowy landscape. Just for fun, she also spends a good portion of the Tim Kelly-directed piece wearing an insane hat that’s approximately the size of a giant log. (via Gorilla vs. Bear)
