Track of the Week: Finally Moving by Pretty Lights

If you can believe, it’s been about six weeks since the last Track of the Week. Let’s see if we can make up for lost time with this week’s track, Finally Moving by Pretty Lights, off of Taking Up Your Precious Time. Sampling Etta James’ Something’s Got a Hold on Me has become in vogue recently, with covers coming from the electronica camp by Avicii to the radio-hip-hop version by Flo Ria. This week’s track is a bit older, from Pretty Light’s debut album in 2006. It’s a laid back track, unassuming and wraps Etta James’ vocals on a classic hip-hop beat with a little bit of elecronica styling throwing in for good measure. It’s a fun song, worth listening to on repeat.
