Just the other day, singer/songwriter Solange (yes, Solange Knowles, Beyonce’s sister), released the video for her latest single “Losing You,” on Pitchfork, at the same time that Terrible Records released the single digitally worldwide through iTunes and other electronic sources.  This track manages to bridge sweet, bubble gum pop with trippy electronica – and done in such a lively, playful way. 

The video was shot in Cape Town, South Africa and it deftly captures the elegant, flash and style of a group called Le SAPE (Society for the Advancement of People of Elegance). Looking at them reminds me of old photos I had seen of my paternal grandfather – apparently, he was a flashy dresser himself.
