Something a little bit different from the usual stuff you find round these parts.
I bought Archandroid last summer after reading all of the reviews and expected a bit or R&B in the style of Kelis or the like. But the album is a melting pot of different styles and experimentation at times a bit psychedelic at other a bit folky and with quite a bit of a jazz feel. But on the whole, the concept album about a dystopian future holds together rather well and keeps your attention throughout.
Here is one of the stand out tracks
Janelle Monae - Tightrope
and the brilliant performance from Glastonbury earlier this year.
