Santogold / Downtown / Lizard King Records

So new? No! So Root ! Hi-Fi-Stereo-Summer, Yess!!!

 
 

Mrs. Santi White’s aka Santogold first Solo Album
Shall we hate?
Or
Shall we love?

Advisory:
Here, for sure, there is nothing in between.

Question:
Is it too much mainstream and commercial stuff or simple good sound?

Everyone have to decide this himself.
I will not return a verdict about this.
Is just music, only two criterions for me on this area: either I like or I don’t.
Obviously in this case I like, otherwise there would be no reason to lose words on it.

What they say:
“We began trying to write Pop-Songs to sell, which made us depressed, so we started to write songs for ourselves instead”

What they do:
New Wave / Dub / R’n’B written and produced by Jonny Hill alias Jonny Rodeo and Santi White in collaboration with guest artists such as: M.I.A., Switch, Freq Nasty, Steel Pulse and Disco D. Samuel Jackisch
Self-described influenced by “Bad Brains” and “The Burning Spear” released on Lizard King Records.
Support of “Björk” at Madison Square Garden two years ago.

What we hear:
For my ears the hottest girl stuff since “The Pierces”, heavy club beats, lots of melo, some electro dub all drowned out by this absolutely shrill and sweet voice of Santi and so nice punky.
“Bad Brains”? No hear? I clearly! This is the stuff we grew up with, our university : Hardcore - Dancehall - Electro - Punk.
So new? No! So Root ! Hi-Fi-Stereo-Summer, Yess!!!

Fave songs:
To write about this record I did listen at least ten times in two weeks. In the car, at the beach, in bed and while breakfast…
Maybe is #8 or what was it #2… I don’t know… is just simple gold.

What you want to have:

The totally independence?
Or
The dedicated connecting without any borders?
