Is Santogold the best thing to happen to pop music since M.I.A?

Santogold

We are probably the last music based web-space to vomit out some descriptive words in the direction of the Philadelphia female popster, Santogold.

She is currently drowning in the overwhelming blog hype that has claimed the life of many a gifted musician before her.

She can lazily be described as 'M.I.A with less politics and more spunk'. A slightly less lazy description could possibly say that her music is the soundtrack for a movie where Tegan and Sarah go missing in action, wander around in some sort of light psychedelic dream and occasionally find themselves in the dirty back alleys of Karen's O.

Her music is interesting. She doesn't find herself stuck on the same path for too long and her debut record is chock full of notable influences that show off her unique mishing and mashing of styles and genres.

Exhibit A - An instantly addictive up-tempo pop track, with a nice distinct reggae feel:

Say Aha

Exhibit B - The clear standout moment on the album. A fantastically well executed, shoegazing pop number:

Update: mp3 removed upon request.

And finally - a remix. Because everytime an artist BLOWS UP on the interwebzzz, it's guaranteed that twenty minutes later there is a whole barrage of remixes out there.

Lil' bonus - the very cool (and slightly trippy) video for L.E.S. Artistes...



Her debut self-titled album is due out locally via Inertia on May 3. Gold dust vomit!! Very awesome stuff.
