Mood: Revolutionary

ALLURE

Beautiful usage of the xylophone to create electronica.

JANELLE MONAE

Janelle is an auteur in every sense. Uniform? Check. Own hairstyle? Check. “Tightrope” personalized dance moves? Check. Beauty? Check. Creating music that isn’t only for the sake of making money? Check. Monae is attempting to revamp the American music listening experience from being fed fast food pop to some real tunes; and for attempting such a feat, she is a revolutionary.

Some music reviewers refer to Janelle Monae as one of the most underrated artists in America and I wholeheartedly agree. I’ve seen her perform live once and she did nothing but impress. A true performer and artist, not packaged to be a figment of our celebrity doused imaginations. “Oh Maker” is beautiful and chill, if you want something a little more exciting from her newest album, check out “Tightrope” and “Faster.”

Watch Janelle perform an absolutely pristine “Tightrope” on George Lopez and Letterman here.

FRENCH HORN REBELLION

Ridiculously catchy song that also makes you feel like you’re living inside a Nintendo game.

THE COUP

mp3: My Favorite Mutiny [The Coup]

———

I’m breaking out from the “mood” but I just really wanted to post this version of Justin Bieber’s “Baby” mixed with MSTRKRFT’s “Heartbreaker.” I can’t really stand super teeny bopper music about “love” and “relationships” because it just seems like these kids are singing about stuff they have no clue about. But this version by CJ Milli is undeniably infectious.
