Solange covers the Dirty Projectors, delivers a little bit of awesome

God bless Solange. When life handed her lemons—in the form of a world-dominating, longest-shadow-casting super-diva sister— she went ahead and made herself a lemon drink, dammit. She built herself a sandcastle disco in the sky; she brought B and the Jigga Man to a Grizzly Bear show; she covered her some Bjork.
