Okay, like other bloggers out there, I’m currently kinda obsessed with Santogold. She came into the spotlight after appearing on Mark Ronson’s crazy cool party album, Version (with a cover of The Jam’s “Pretty Green”). Now, she’s winning raves and buzz, as indie geeks like myself wait patiently for an upcoming solo debut LP.
The Brooklyn-based singer has a lot in common with M.I.A. They share similar styles, some of the same producers, and they both excel at bringing a dub/reggae vibe to New Wave pop. I was gonna single out one Santogold song to pick as an MP3 for Wednesday, but I can’t decide. You decide.
There are four stellar tracks on her official MySpace page. You can stream them now, and you should. I DARE you to pick one favorite. Is it “Les Artistes” or “Creators”… or, something else?
