After all that we’ve been through…

Solange (yes, Beyonce’s sister) put out one of the best albums of last year: Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams, a groovy Motown/Brill Building throwback laced with Boards of Canada samples and electronica. Dirty Projectors put out what might be the best album of this year: Bitte Orca. The collision of these two awesome things into one super awesome thing is something pretty damn awesome. Solange covers Stillness is the Move, flipping the same sample Erykah used in Bag Lady.

While I’m loathe to call this a better version (for one thing, it’s missing the totally mesmerizing trilled guitar work of Dave Longstreth), it’s a damn good take on Stillness.
