late to the party -santigold

Santigold (recent name change from Santogold for legal reasons) rocked out after the end of the US Open halfpipe competition last w/e. More dancey/bass live than this clip, the sound set up was great and Santi White herself was very chatty, cheeky and fired up.

Have to admit I had thought Santigold might be toocoolforschool or achingly hip, but completely my loss. Stylized to hell sure, but great stuff. A calculated sound, try "the love child of submarine sonar and low frequency midnight moans...dub and 80’s-pop ... sometimes basement rock, sometimes Bananarama-soundclash...spaghetti western-outlaw, roots rock and digital street blip" from
