Janelle Monáe Shows Us 'Many Moons'


What's so fantastic about Janelle Monáe is that she manages to flesh out the creativity in her music without sacrificing any of its wildly fantastical elements. Even though the back-story is complicated, the music is enjoyable even without having to take Metropolis 101. That said, the video for "Many Moons" supplements her vision of a futuristic world amazingly well. In it Cindi Mayweather performs at the chic Metropolis Annual Android Auction with more energy than the electric organ and punching drums backing her. There are some cameos (was that Big Boi as Sir Lucious Leftfoot?), but mostly it's Monáe as multiple stylish robots. It's a great deal of fun to watch her android alter-ego work herself to the point of transcendence/malfunction-- and boy can she move. "Many Moons" is a gloriously high concept, sleek, futuristic good time.
