CHVRCHES covering "Tightrope" by Janelle Monáe

I don't know how I feel about this … It's interesting, but the lack of the funk sound leaves me wanting more.

I get that. I prefer the cover because it's more my tastes. Lyrically for the most part I like Janelle Monáes music, unfortunately I just don't like the sound. It doesn't do anything for me, then again I have only listens to maybe 10 or so of her songs, most likely from the same album.

I find that her music is very dynamic. It draws on 60's soul, pop, and 70's funk. A lot of it is music that makes you want to move. She's definitely up tempo, but it fits when you need to get stuff done, want a little uplift, and have the ability to move your feet. Each of her albums is complete and each track is complementary. There's definitely a lot of thought put into the POV of the albums. I don't know which of the four you've listened to. But, to keep this in theme, here's a cover she did of Goldfinger:

Sarge has tried a number of times to try and get me into her music but I just can't. I love her as a person, I'll have to try a number of tracks on different albums but I've yet to find a jam that really gets me going.

Also... sorry to disappoint but I hate Goldfinger haha

Now you're just being difficult. Lol.

If she's not your jam, she's not. I have a feeling that it's the style, and there's not going to be anything that will speak to you from her (at least based on what you've posted in the music threads). It's okay; not everyone has the stellar taste I do. ;)

I did use one of her songs in the highlight videos! I just think she is an artists I really have to be in a certain mood for. I'm in a big London Grammar mood as of late so if you don't like the band you might want to skip this post, but I would say at least check out the first two.

London Grammar doing a cover of "Nightcall" by Kavinsky. I'm interested to see what Sarge thinks of this one.

I like her voice, but I'm not a fan of the Nightcall cover.

I've been on a Kawehi binge recently and she performs a number of covers. She's an artist that uses loop pedals, effects, mine keyboards, mixers, beatboxing etc, basically a one woman band. She has something like 15 covers on her channel so I'm just going to post 3 or 4 I really like but check out her channel and the other covers, you may like one.
