New Janelle Monae: Dance Apocalyptic

Album playbacks usually involve being shoved into a darkened room and force-fed a CD at bowel-rupturing volumes. Not so with Janelle Monae. The playback of her forthcoming album The Electric Lady last month saw the irrepressible R&B diva jumping on tables, singing along and generally gyrating with the enthusiasm of a happy spaniel.

It's not hard to see why. First single Q.U.E.E.N. was a slow-burning funk masterpiece, and the newest release Dance Apocalyptic is a quickstep boogie-woogie masterpiece (with a polite nod to Prince's Dance Electric). This is guaranteed to get you shimmying in your slinkies. Sha-lang-a-lang-a-lang.

Janelle Monae - Dance Apocalyptic

The Electric Lady is out in September - but if you pre-order the album now, you get Dance Apocalyptic today. Is that an incentive? Who knows.
