I like the horns. James Brown style
I saw her on Ellen a couple of days ago and have watched this vid probably 20 times since. I love the energy in it...
the girl just cooks, I'm glad you posted about her.
Ya thats where I saw her too. The Ellen vid wouldnt embed so I found the Letterman one.
Very nice... thanks...
Janelle Monae - Sincerely Jane
I think there's a good possibility that the bald guitar player is the same one that's in her band. Just a hunch as that Strat shows up in several vids.
Janelle Monae -
Many Moons: Short Film
Many Moons: Live in Atlanta
Thats a high energy show. Nice C-walking by Janelle too
The "Rap" part of that video drags down the energy level to zip.
Then she comes back and kicks it in the ass....
I like all the James Brown references thats why I liked her.
The horn section is great!
Watched a couple of those clips and she just did not do it for me. The whole James Brown act comes off as a gimmick to me. Give me Sharon Jones, Alice Russell or Kylie Auldist over her any day.
It's a big world.. there's room for everybody...
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings - 100 Days
Kylie Auldist - On The Sly
Alice Russell - Taking Hold
There sure are a lot of references, arn't there? The horns, the accents, the dancing, even the cape and haircut. I got to say she is very good and I love the energy. If you are going to steal, steal from the best.
i really liked this. thought it was just really great groove and someone really knows what they're doin harmony wise with this tune as well.
Thinking I'll need to check out her new album.
I just recently got hip to this chick. TIME magazine had a big writeup on her a few months back.
she is badass
