A few weeks back we reported that Santogold was releasing her debut self-titled CD. I finally got a chance to grab a copy this weekend and I’ve been listening to it non-stop since I got it. I love it when I get a CD that I can listen to all the way without skipping over less-likeable tracks and there is definitely NO skipping here. Each track is amazing and can stand on it’s own. When heard together, it’s genius. Santogold is a bit of an enigma so please don’t try pigeon-holing this lovely songstress into one category because it’s impossible – she defies categorization and has a sound that is uniquely her own. Her voice is different on each track: Seductive, demure, powerful and ready to kick your ass. The music is really catchy and has hints of many different genres including punk, trip hop, rock, electronica, ska, and new wave to name a few. Santogold is a refreshing change to the generic pop princesses that do re-mixes of popular songs and shake their asses (ahem, Fergie and crew). Santi White not only sings but she writes all of her music. She is even listed in some of the credits for production, mixing, instruments and engineering. She truly is an artist and an inspiration. If you love music, you will love Santogold. She will leave you wanting more. I give her 5 hearts out of 5.
