Freebie Adventures: A Ticket To Wondaland

Friday, April 1, 2011

Thank goodness for Janelle Monae.

She has saved me from the clutches of a truly sucktastic week with this freebie adventure. If you missed Ms. Monae live at last month's SXSW or if you're like me and haven't gotten the experience to catch her live (yeah, I suck), Centric's Soul Sessions blog has a treat, as they have made available the full "Killers, Lasers, and Papers" set at SXSW ready and legal for download consumption. Yep, 18 tracks, all in great quality. Jackpot.

Usually music fans I come across despise live albums, personally I love them, and keep a nice lofty collection of them. (I truly cherish the Madonna live collection I have...but that is beside the point.) If you missed out on SXSW last month (like almost everybody), then this is the next best thing to being there feeling the sweat and energy that Janelle exudes during a performance. You can hear the saddle shoes just stompin' the stage with this set as Monae and her band just turns it out. Check the tracklisting after the cut, and snag the download if you already haven't done so. No April Foolin' here.
