a handful of words about janelle monae...

as is often the case with january magazines, this month's skinny has a 'ones to watch' sort of feature. rather than try and predict which brandspankingnew act would make the biggest splash in the coming year, i went with a tried-and-tested artist with exciting plans afoot...

Last seen bending brains with The ArchAndroids neo-funk robo-soul revue under the watch of Outkast's Big Boi, Janelle Monae isn’t exactly understated in her ambition. She’s got big plans for its follow-up, too: not one, but two new albums tentatively scheduled for this year.

While she’s not yet set a release date for these twin creations, work is apparently well underway – judging from the tracks debuted live so far, she’s dialled down the oddball concepts but sacrificed none of her glamour or magnetism.

[that's it - told you it was just a handful of words... the rest of the article, with words on deafheaven, plastic animals and vasquez, can be read here]
