Grimes & Janelle Monáe Lead The Last Loop Of 2015


grimes and janelle

Two of our favourite female artists, Grimes and Janelle Monáe, join forces in ‘Venus Fly’ and reach the top of the last loop of the year, before we begin our annual best of recap. The track is taken from the young Canadian star’s acclaimed second album ‘Art Angels.’

Post-hardcore Brooklyn quartet Big Ups is the highest entry on an edition that features both a glimpse into some of the next years’ most anticipating releases: Antony’s courting with electronica through his new monkiker, Anohni; Animal Collective; Erykah Badu feat. Andre 3000; Chupa Cabra; dvsn; Chairlift; Aesop Rock with Homeboy Sandman; Lucas DiPasquale with Popcaan; Suede and M. Ward among them.

And also features last minute tracks released by some of the biggest artist of the year, as a reminder to take them in consideration for best of lists, such as Kendrick Lamar; Bjórk; Fetty Wap; Oneohtrix Point Never; plus the return of Phoenix, teaming up with Bill Murray on a version of a Beach Boys track for the Hollywood star’s Netflix Xmas special.
