Every week, Take Two has the latest music to get your feet tapping. This week, music supervisor Morgan Rhodes shares her picks.
Artist: Janelle Monae
Album: Dirty Computer
Take A Byte
Don't Judge Me
Janelle Monae's "Dirty Computer" is a sonic open look into the open book that is her life, her passions, her art. With its pop/funk sensibilities, and Prince-influenced vibe, it's a journey towards truth— bold, self-assured truth.
I Want You
Hallucinating (Mariachi Version)
Elohim's self-titled debut is transparency set to electronic beats. It is raw and honest with songs like "Panic Attack" and "Insecure" and a sound that's dreamy. Her truth may be heavy, but it feels light.
Artist: The Internet
Roll (Burbank Funk)
It's been three years since the Grammy-nominated Ego Death dropped, but The Internet is back with a head-nodding bouncer that's sure to rock the dance floor and the skating rink. Roll (Burbank Funk) is everything you didn't know you needed right now.
Artist: Children of Zeus
Album: Slow Down/All Night
Children of Zeus' "All Night" is a little bit hip-hop and a whole lot of soul. Beatmaker Konny Kon links up with artist Tyler Daley to produce a sound that hearkens back to the early days of neo-soul, using classic samples and slow tempo vocals to give the song a "back in the day" feel.
