As much as I think Janelle is one of the most talented singers around these days, she lost me completely when she used the term “fandroids” to describe the people that support her career.

Count the Monae!

Good news and bad news for Janelle Monae fans.  The good news first.  The tremendously talented singer said that she plans to release two concept albums in 2012 and that the recording is over 85% finished. The bad news.  She calls the people that support her music “fandroids” and said that while she will do her best to stick to approved release dates, the music will ultimately be released when her “soul clock” says it’s ready.

Now isn’t that crazy?!

Top 12 Albums of 2010

I’m so happy that 2010 was a great year for music!  Last year, I struggled to find 10 albums I liked enough and this year, I had to stop myself at my favorite 12.  I was fortunate enough to meet 11 out of the 12 artists in 2010 (Arcade Fire being the exception) and I saw 11 out of the 12 albums performed live (with Kele being the exception) and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the artists again for making my ears so happy in 2010.  I’ve listened to all of these albums so many times this year and I love them all dearly.

Janelle Monae - ArchAndroid is released on May 18, 2010.

I’ve been a fan of Janelle Monae for several years now and I’ve seen her perform live 3 times.  I think her performances are great as she has an amazing voice, she dances (often moonwalks) and sometimes paints a picture (literally) as she is performing.  Her first full length album, The ArchAndroid, will be released on May 18, 2010 and I’ve been lucky enough to have the record a full week prior to its release!  The album picks up where “The Chase Suite,” her first EP leaves off.
