Santogold by Santigold
Released: Apr 2008
Label: Downtown Recordings
Philly native, Brooklyn transplant and former Stiffed frontwoman Santogold's self-titled debut brims with experimental vocals; dub, new wave and electro-grime soundscapes; and quirky hood swagger. Her anti-establishment lean and love for Bad Brains and Devo were the creative rocket fuel. "Anne," a tale of drug addiction, unfurls over a Kraftwerk sample. "L.E.S. Artistes," in all its vulnerability, still smashes a reality check over the heads of downtown NY scenesters. But it is "Starstruck" that will leave you feeling that way, unworthy of her cryptic siren call and jet-blast reverb.
