It has been five long years since we last heard from Santigold. Five long years ago, the artist known as Santi White was still called Santogold and her ultra-catchy hits Creator and especially L.E.S. Aristes were playing all over the radio and television commercials.
After being mired with label troubles (not her fault), we are finally ready for Santigold‘s proper sophomore follow-up album. I am glad to report then the wait wasn’t in vain. Master of My Make-Believe is full of that catchy fusion of electronic dub, reggae, and hip-hop that makes Santigold‘s songs a joy to listen to – and yes, incredibly fun to dance to.
Check out the videos for the adventurous Disparate Youth and the beat-making Big Mouth embedded below.
