Art Angels had prime placement on basically every 2015 End of Year list, with #1 spots from NME, Stereogum, Gorilla Vs. Bear and others. Jon Pareles of the NY Times called the album “a solo tour de force,” Stereogum said, “In 2015, nothing sounded better,” and Rolling Stone called it a “triumph.” Time Magazine named ‘Flesh Without Blood’ the #1 song of the year while iTunes named Art Angels the #1 Indie Album of 2015 and it finished out the year at #1 most added on CMJ Radio. Within the past year, Grimes graced the covers of The FADER, Nylon, Dazed and Confused, NME, London’s ES Magazine, Flare and more.
