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


Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp a Butterfly
JH: It's always hard to say why you like a record, but I love the beats on this. It's another one that my mum introduced me to, she's really into hip hop and R&B. I really feel like Kendrick addresses a lot of issues in his music, and he addresses them really well.

RW: I love the interludes,

JH: I feel like this album kicked off a voicemail trend that comes up on like every big hip hop and R&B album now. They always have someone's mum talking on them.
