Watch: of Montreal + Solange Knowles on Fallon

on July 30, 2010, 7:19am

It doesn’t really make any sense that Solange is this indie-friendly songstress — what is it, her hip clothing and haircut? — while the obviously more talented Beyoncé only appears to be cool when standing next to Jay-Z. Little sister Knowles appeared last night with eternally indie-friendly pop-rockers of Montreal on the pleasantly indie-friendly Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

They performed “Sex Karma”, an R&B song originally intended for her album but which will appear on of Montreal’s False Priest when it drops September 14th. It’s pretty easy to forget how much Solange sounds like her sister until she opens her mouth, but when she does, you find her voice accompanies that of Kevin Barnes surprisingly well, probably better than her famous sister’s would.

That said, this performance is a bunch of mimes playing Motown music with a pop star’s flawed sister, so don’t get too excited. However, a web-only clip of “Coquet Coquette” is something to be excited about. The mimes come out in full force for this song and even bring some sword-wielding Tuskan Raiders with them. The track is very psychedelic and is worth a watch just for the guitar solo, which could be confused for a theremin solo.

Check out both tracks below.
