Lyrics of that song are also annoying - "I'm creative! I break the rules!" also "I run the streets" - wtf does that even mean when she says it?

First time I've ever heard that. I knew Santi had worked on some of Ashlee's songs, and kept meaning to go back and check into it. I LIKES.

Had this since around the year it came out. I really didn't get it. Thought it was half cooked pop rock/MIA wannabe bull. However, listening to it on the way to work and realized it sounded great as a whole. I mean it's influences is worn on its sleeve still, but at least I "get" it now. Plus I tend to forget that MIA is a half cooked Neneh Cherry so it all evens out.

this music is just fucking terrible terrible shit, don't even put neneh's name near this thread

um...wow. It's not that deep or crucial.

lilsoulbrother, Friday, 5 March 2010 15:58 (seven years ago) Permalink

And plus, it's hard not to bring up Neneh since she is one of the obvious precursor of these two women.

Agree with others. This song is great and it has that "Oh wow of course these two should do a song together" thing to it. I was worried Santigold was going to be an indie one album wonder.

The new Beastie Boys collab is mighty fine imo.

StanM, Tuesday, 5 July 2011 07:26 (six years ago) Permalink

yeah alright "lights out" is pretty alright, the rest of the album is like m.i.a. playing uninteresting pop-punk/ska tunes tho

pretty sure the Santogold thread is not ilx's collective porch, unless we're ignoring the 500 people who worship new order in favor of the 10 who like santigold???

that percussion is like receiving an unrefusable order to break yo fuckin neck

love amadou & mariam so much! "taxi bamako" was my morning hangover music for like three years

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Wednesday, 18 January 2012 17:19 (five years ago) Permalink

Yeah, everyone seemed to know about Amadou & Mariam besides me, so thanks to Santi for giving me an "in". Definitely have listened to them on Spotify in the past couple weeks.

There's a stream of the new album here http://disconaivete.com/post/21321079127

It sounds a lot more understated than I was expecting. Disparate Youth is the best thing on here by a mile.

Kitchen Person, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 14:06 (five years ago) Permalink

I can't get that stream to work for whatever reason

an independent online phenomenon (DJP), Wednesday, 18 April 2012 14:45 (five years ago) Permalink

Yeah, most of the tracks aren't even playable.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 14:49 (five years ago) Permalink

Maybe it only works for people in the UK? I only found as someone put a link up on the Popjustice forum.

Kitchen Person, Wednesday, 18 April 2012 14:53 (five years ago) Permalink

Listening to it now and, while understated, it's fantastic the whole way through. "The Keeper" borrows a little of its contruction/melody from "Little Red Corvette" in a great way.

Johnny Fever, Sunday, 22 April 2012 16:36 (five years ago) Permalink

"Disparate Youth" is one of my singles of the year.

Exile in lolville (Alfred, Lord Sotosyn), Sunday, 22 April 2012 17:25 (five years ago) Permalink

It's one of mine too, cannot believe it only reached number 96 in the charts here. The whole album is really good but that song just blows the rest away.

Kitchen Person, Sunday, 22 April 2012 19:36 (five years ago) Permalink

I know it's not that uncommon but a performer who invites audience members up on stage with her is always going to make me like them that little bit more.

Really like this album - disparate youth (obv) but The Riot's Gone is also pretty outstanding - but absolutely love her live show. The dancers are amazing!
