Oh Maker

Janelle Monáe is a super fresh kid from the future who reminds me of everyone and no one else. Here she brings a young Michael Jackson spirit to a 60s folk soul number straight out of the blue. At times she evokes Led Zeppelin III, Stevie Wonder's Key of Life, Dusty Springfield in Memphis, Bowie in Detroit.
She's from Kansas City, Kansas, is not yet a quarter century old, and owns the moment.
