Aural Story of the Week

I had the great pleasure to see The Dirty Projectors this weekend. So they naturally get this week’s aural story of the week spot. It’s “Stillness is the Move,” which starts with a baby having no opinions at all, hits a 20-something longing for a bigger city, and curls back to wonder where, well, you and I begin:

when the child was just a child
it did not know what it was
like a child it had no habits
no opinion about anything

maybe i will get a job
get a job as a waitress
maybe waiting tables in a diner
in some remote city down the highway

It’s all based on a 1980s German film. Listen and watch:

Listen to Beyonce’s sister cover it, here.
