‘Tightrope’, featuring Big Boi, is sure to be a break out track with lots of radio airplay. ‘Mushrooms & Roses’ is what happens if the Beatles and Prince were to back a funkyfresh soul like Janelle. She's the R&B/Soul/Pop equivalent of XTC.
This album will garner some mainstream attention with some of the infectious grooves on this album but don't let that fool you. Janelle is complex and interesting in a way her SXSW shows have only shown us a glimpse.
Do you think the album art was inspired by Earth, Wind and Fire's 'Raise'?
