I'm Looking Forward To Hearing... Roman GianArthur’s new release

For the last two weeks, I’ve been devouring everything I can about the music behind Janelle Monáe's The ArchAndroid, so I was pleasantly surprised when I came across a 2010 compilation released by the Wondaland Arts Society (the collective behind the sound of The ArchAndroid).

There are a lot of interesting tracks on the abstract-titled We Bumped Our Heads Against The Cloud; my favorite is “Depraved Valet” – a smoothed-out, 80’s electronic, Prince-tinged ballad by Roman GianArthur (with vocals by Kevin Barnes).

Clocking in at just under 3 minutes, “Depraved Valet” is a nice teaser: good enough to get a flavor of the song, but leaving the listener wanting more.
