Santigold [Music Monday]

Any artist that conspicuously uses glitter in their album art is okay by me. Particularly if that glitter represents words, or vomit, or...both?



I'm not gonna lie: I'm kind of in love with Santigold. I'd heard of her in connection with other artists, but like I've said before, I'm kind of lazy about seeking out music on my own. I began listening to her when an M.I.A. YouTube video led to one of hers.



Hot damn this woman is awesome.



Formerly known as Santogold and Santi White, she was also a part of the punk outfit Stiffed.



Santigold's voice is lovely, and her beats are making me bop rather conspicuously in my chair at work.



And now I have a burning desire to go see her live. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), she has no dates and I am broke. Sigh.

  2. Yay! I love Santogold. I listen to the song "I'm a Lady" on repeat like a thousand times, especially when I used to go for night walks on campus.
