Description

Composed of absolutely no members, Santogold is the first musical outfit capable of claiming the planet’s broiling collective consciousness as their front woman. Longtime collaborator, singer and songwriter Santi White says of her work with Santogold, “We began trying to write pop songs to sell, which made us depressed, so we started writing songs for ourselves instead.” The results of that self-centered conceit is the songwriting work heard for the first time on the full length Santogold album. “We’re hoping that each and every 20-something from downtown San Francisco to central Mumbai will also learn something from our work! And to the people dropping no-knock fire on old ladies in Atlanta: shame on you! Santogold ain’t with that sh*t!”
With collaborations with cutting edge producers Switch, FreQ Nasty, Naeem (Spank Rock), Disco D and XXXChange, Santogold sings quirky-yet-undeniably-catchy melodies over new-wave break beats (“L.E.S. Artistes”) and surprisingly indie rock instrumentation (“You’ll Find a Way,” co-produced by M.I.A. and Switch, who gives it a proper re-treatment with Sinden). The standout track “Creator” commences with a frenetic jazz drum loop and a mating call that mimics a turntablism trick before the first verse drops and the nu-techno sonics swirl around her militant chanting. The trajectory of her early successes, leading to newfound political clout is nothing new for Santogold, whose debut album, though half a century in the making, is sure to rock glass pipes from the Lincoln Memorial to Buckingham palace. The flavor of the gold is guaranteed: Santogold!
