Janelle Monáe - The Electric Lady

Pretty entertaining on the first listen. I'll play it louder during the day on the weekend to put my speakers through their paces.

I liked it more by the 3rd time. I got over the trashy/thrashy way they like the recording to sound. Kinda like da Status Quo meets Led Zep II, the music, not the sound.

Way off the beaten path is this month's model out of UK, Public Service Broadcasting's "Inform, Educate, Entertain."

One guy plays all 4/5/6-stringed plectrum instruments and keys. The other player is a drummer and brass player.

It's sort of techno, which is not my thing, but with guitars and a real drummer, and a pretty good one, too, it makes a big difference.

Here's the odd part: there are no "melodies" or vocals. Appearing with the music are obscure spoken-word soundtrack pieces, all chosen from one British film/tv archive. The snippets and samples are from the 30's up to the early 60's. One whole "song" is about the amazing arrival of color TV in Britain, spoken in perfect BBC high RP.

Appearing from the US is part of the voice over tack from a little ditty I remember seeing in 1969 (proabably made in the vy early 60'S), called "Signal 30." It was, then anyway, a mainstay of driver's ed classes, displaying the most gruesome aftermath shots and footage of fatal car crashes.

The music is sort of 80's British Romantics, co-mingled with techno, dance, and more than a bit of good ol' 70's prog
passages.

It's sort of like a soundtrack for an hour's worth of trailers. It goes to some interesting places, both musically (esp rhythmically) and sonically. I'd still file under R & R, no matter the sub-genres.

CHVRCHES - The Bones of What You Believe

Great album so far. Already ordered the CD from Amazon.com after listening to the first half on Spotify.

Also enjoying Cerys Matthews's new album, Hullabaloo.

And I keep going back to Jesca Hoop's The Complete Kismet Acoustic, too.

How'd this gets to 73 million views before I ever heard it?

Agreed! I've had this in pretty heavy rotation, along with:

Franz Ferdinand - Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action

Iron and Wine - Ghost on Ghost

Nine Inch Nails - Hesitation Marks

Okkervil River - The Silver Gymnasium

Elvis Costello and The Roots - Wise Up Ghost

Really diggin' Elvis with the Roots, even though some purists have been down on it!

On the other hand I was unfortunate enough to pick up the new UB40 album, Getting Over the Storm. This truly borders on easy-listening reggae/ska and makes me feel terribly old. Is this what UB40 fans from back in the day are looking for? Sheesh...
