The fact that Dirty Projectors are re-releasing this single from last year gives me a great opportunity to showcase it here: “Stillness Is The Move” is simple, combining some cut-up singing and an R’n’B style backbeat as the foundation stone for the soaring vocals. It can be a little weird in places but essentially this is just an unconventional pop ballad that still sounds fresh every time you listen to it:

Oh, and if you liked that then surprisingly Beyonce’s sister Solange did a remarkably good cover version of it. I’d recommend you check it out and compare the two.
