|Finally, Internetz I haz it! Whoopee, seriously! Anygays I'll jump right into the Roskilde preview post. I'm really looking forward to Santogold, though I see I didn't mention that in my last post. Go figure...
Santi White has delivered one of the best albums of the year. It's a ska / reggae / new wave thing which is hard to put into one box. At certain points it sounds like Blondie, at other times it's M.I.A. The album (including its B-sides and remixes) features appearances or production work from Chuck Treece, Cliffored "Moonie" Pusey of Steel Pulse, Diplo, Freq Nasty, M.I.A, Naeem Juwan of Spank Rock, Radioclit, Sinden, Switch, Trouble Andrew, and XXXchange. That basically translates into one hell of a patch work.
It's hard for me to point out a single favorite track, but 'Shove it' is head-bouncing-tastic and 'Lights out' which sounds like it's lifted from an obscure 80's album by some one-hit-wonder who did a hit single for some film about teenage drama is killer.
Santogold - Shove it
Santogold - Lights out
