Cool & Collected: Let's Eat Grandma's Favourite Albums
Aimee Armstrong , July 4th, 2018 12:12

As Let's Eat Grandma release excellent new album I'm All Ears, they guide Aimee Armstrong through a Baker's Dozen loaded with contemporary pop, from Janelle Monáe to Sophie, Kendrick Lamar, Lorde and Christine & The Queens


Christine and The Queens - Chaleur Humaine
RW: One of the things that's really cool about Christine is that she releases her music in English and French. She uses it as a tool for writing lyrics because she can bounce off the meanings in different languages.

JH: She's a great dancer too

RW: Also like Janelle Monáe and Sophie, she creates a whole world. The emotion in her body when she dances equals the emotions when she opens her mouth.

JH: I love how Perfume Genius is on the record too. Those two really make sense working together.
