New Music: Solange – ‘Left Side Drive’

Solange

Solange digs in the crates and shares a previously unheard song with her fans. Written two years ago over Scottish duo Boards of Canada’s “Left Side Drive,” the 24-year-old singer gently coos over the electronic beat.

“It’s completely unofficial, and was just inspired by the song which i have had a deep love affair with for years,” she explained, adding, “I am a huge Boards of Canada fan, and got the chance to work with them on Sol-Angel on ‘This Bird’. Still feel honored to this day.”

    Ooh, I love this. Say what you want about her career or her personal life, but Sol-Angel was a beast of an album and I love that she’s doing something different than you’d expect. Gorgeous song.

    I like it. Solange is doing her own thing and I respect that. It’s not that commercial but that doesn’t matter. She’s slowly finding her voice, and what she’s produces has been good 2nd album onwards.

    I actually like this. I slept on Solange, but I’ve heard a few songs I like and her style is pretty cool. I might have to go and check her out on iTunes now.

    No no no no no and another NO.
    This is just raping the beautiful BoC song by repressing it to the back
    Drop the voice Bring on the noize. PURE electronix!
    ONLY make a remix when asked. This is just trying to hitchhike the BoC Flow.

    Boards of Canada is a band with over 175,000 fans on Facebook and putting out tunes (3 albums and 5 eps) since the mid 90′s on the preeminent electronic music label Warp Records. Solange, by comparison has only 18,000 Facebook fans. Face it: Boards of Canada is more famous than Solange.

    I mean it is great that she has good taste in music while most of the attention she gets is from fans of her sisters pop music, but let’s just put things in perspective. If you don’t like the song she is singing to you are in the minority and you disagree with her.

    She basically did the same thing with the Boards of Canada track “Slow this Bird Down” with her tune “This Bird” on Sol-Angel, she sang over their tune. My guess is that she probably licensed Left Side Drive at the same time but the label cut it from the album.
