The Guardian, the British daily that claims to be the largest English language paper on the web apart from the New York Times, surprised many today with its choice for Best Album of 2010. This year's honors go to The ArchAndroid by Janelle Monae, an artist the Guardian describes as "absurdly talented."
Nor is the Guardian alone in that opinion: The influential PopMatters website has also chosen The ArchAndroid as its #1 album, while MTV and Rhapsody both rank it in their Top Ten.
All of which means there's no better time to read (or re-read) the Indy's interview with the up-and-coming pop sensation, which you can find right here.
