“Make The Bus”, the latest single from Janelle Monae’s much anticipated album The ArchAndroid,
features indie pop-rock darlings Of Montreal. In theory, this collaboration would present a chance for two fearlessly innovative artists to really let their imaginations runs wild. just think: ArchAnrdroid
is written through Janelle’s alter ego Cindi Mayweather, and for Of Montreal’s most recent album Skeletal Lamping
, lead singer Kevin Barnes further explored his own alter ego “Georgie Fruit”. Could these two somehow introduce their imaginary friends to one another and create great music? Listen below.

Unlike her collab with Big Boi on “Tightrope,” there is very little of Janelle to be heard here on “Make The Bus.” So, great news if you’re a fan of Of Montreal, because the track sounds like a long lost single off of Skeletal Lamping.
Does “Make The Bus” sound too much like Of Montreal’s “Triphallus, To Punctuate!”? Sound off below.
