Daily Nugget #11: Janelle Monáe, "Wondaland"
I only occasionally leave the sound cave for sustenance and/or diversion, so bumping into new music the old-fashioned way, i.e., hearing it on the radio, happens somewhat infrequently. But in one of those too few serendipitous moments, I heard this track and immediately needed to know whodunnit. I have been reading about Janelle Monáe's The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III) and was planning on checking out her music; well, I think I may have found my Summer Jam '10. It's relentlessly catchy and fun, and the lyrics mention droids, secret Santas, fairygods, and underpants. In other words, resistance is futile.
