Janelle Monae live @SXSW Killers Lasers Paper showcase [Full Concert Audio] | Free Download

A thoroughly engaging, enigmatic performer with a show-stoppingly sweet voice, last month’s SXSW goers were treated to a full on live show from Janelle Manae, who was added to the bill days earlier following Lupe Fiasco‘s withdrawal on doctor’s orders. Backed by her talented band, Monae powered through an energetic 18-track set centred on material from her critically acclaimed LP, The ArchAndroid, with a welcome sprinkling of earlier material.

For those who missed or want to reminisce, download the full concert audio below and get on the tightrope.
