Claire Boucher aka GRIMES graced BBC Radio 3's "Late Junction" last night, and offered up a half-hour mixtape, featuring a smattering of her favorites--old and new.

"I tried to include a mix of weird stuff that I like that's old, and some never stuff I love that inspires, and all-time favorite songs."

Some of that sonic smoothie contains Aphex Twin, Animal Collective, The Internet, Tei Shi, and Shonen Knife.

On a spiritually (and physically) grey Friday like this, a Grimes playlist truly soothes the weary.

Here's a full track-by-track:
