Oblivion by Grimes

Awkward, lispy Claire Boucher is Grimes, 90’s über-label 4AD‘s answer for the 2012 apocalypse.  Lyrics that hint at the dangers of seeking the next high are visualized by director Emily Kai Bock and cinematographer Evan Prosofsky as high-testosterone sporting events in brightly-lit stadiums, frat house hazing, and men’s locker rooms.  Skinny Grimes seems out of place, wagging hotdogs about and waving spectators through frame, somehow indicating that these environments which are polar to her hipster grunge style are as dangerous as the drug seeking within the lyrics.  It may be Kai Bock’s way of expressing condemnation of mainstream jock culture, or the juxtaposition may just be wish fulfillment for the outsiders behind the music.  In any case, Boucher’s ethereal voice and elfin ethic feels dreamlike and transcendent, as if oblivion is on the horizon of imagination.

That gives Dallas a weapon that the Eagles CBs will have to be wary of all game. While Bryant was out, slot WR Cole Beasley led Dallas with 390 receiving yards and 3 TDs. Last November he had 113 yards against the Eagles and nickel CB Ron Brooks is out for the year. That means that the Eagles will slide safety Malcolm Jenkins down to slot CB in the nickel defense. The problem there is that Jenkins was moved from CB to safety earlier in his career Cheap NFL Jerseys because he isn’t great at covering WRs. Expect another big game from Beasley.
