The lovechild of submarine sonar and low frequency midnight moans, Santogold was born somewhere between Bedstuy and Bushwick, Brooklyn and was placed under the care of enigmatic singer and songwriter Santi White. White’s prior musical children have proved more profound than platinum. Songwriter and executive producer behind an album boasting top Billboard singles, and driving voice behind two albums from her uncategorable band Stiffed, Santi White’s familiarity with drawing relevant and enjoyable work from a range of influences makes her a unique figure on today’s musical landscape. Unafraid to wade into currents beyond the mainstream, White’s newest project is Santogold. Santogold’s new album drives dub and 80’s-pop influences from song to song. Sometimes basement rock, sometimes Bananarama-soundclash, Santogold is a vehicle for White’s well drawn late night fight lines and robot-witch scat on the beat. Warbling bass, island upbeat, and deep-south snap provide foundation for White’s whispering lilts and tension-ridden verses.
