Day Dream Album - Janelle Monáe

Note: if you want to know what this is all about check out my intro post

Janelle Monáe is the odd ball artist in the world of Hip Hop/ Dance Music of the current era that I like. She's got a great voice, an interesting perspective on music and appears to do what she wants with her style, her music and her image. I dig her Sci Fi inspired concept album  The ArchAndroid which is well worth checking out.

so IF I was able to pitch her a batch of songs for a covers album these are the ones I would go with....

Jet Black Berries- Articles 

no video for this one... but it's a song about the Burroughs book Cities of the Red Nights...

The Atomic Swindlers - Into the Strange

also no video... but the band featured members of the Jet Black Berries going in a more Hawkwind/ 70s Bowie direction.... well worth checking out... you can here samples of the bands music here 

Galactic Cowboys - Sea of Tranquility 

Fire Inc. - Nowhere Fast

The Blasters - Blue Shadows 

Zolar X - Back in L.A

so this video is more of a history of the band, but it kinda gives you an idea of their sound.

Leningrad Cowboys - Where´s the Moon

The Epoxies-  Everything Looks Beautiful On Video

Scorpions - Robot Man

The Screaming Tribesmen - Igloo

Concrete Blonde - Sky Is A Poisonous Garden

Suicide - Cheree

Theatre of Hate -- Do You Believe In The Westworld?

so there it is the list

Disclaimer: this is all a album I day dream about making, there is no plans or talks of any of this happening...
