Solange, "True EP" (Terrible Records)

Solange's new 7-track EP is a fine collection of smooth songs that will continue to help the singer find her spot in the music world outside of sister Beyonce's immense shadow.

The EP is the follow-up to 2008's "Sol-Angel and the Hadley St. Dreams," a wonderfully crafted retro-soul adventure. Solange continues with that sound on "True," collaborating with British musician Devonte Hynes, who has also worked with The Chemical Brothers and Diana Vickers.

The album finds the 26-year-old singing about a relationship that hasn't really worked out. The lead single and opening track, "Losing You," kicks off things terrifically with its odd (but amazing) beat and Solange's dreamy vocals. Each song flows easily into the next, making the EP easy listening and addictive.

At times, Solange is a vocal tease: She starts songs lightly and often adds enjoyable riffs near the end of the tracks. That's especially on "Lovers In the Parking Lot," and it's a voice worth listening to.

CHECK OUT THIS TRACK: "Lovers In the Parking Lot" is oh-so-good.
