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


Janelle Monáe - The ArchAndroid
RW: For me, this was one of the biggest inspirations to my songwriting. The way she uses layers and orchestral arrangements is amazing, and the way she's created this world - artists like her and Sophie create a whole new world. A whole package. The way she talks about it is great as well, instead of being direct she creates characters. I think she's really thought about how to address issues, she's very funny with it.
