Half of this album is really great and half of it is kind of forgettable. Banshee has grown on me a lot since I first heard it a couple of weeks ago. Kind of reminds me of something on Ze Records.

Love that she's brought some of the new wave influences back from her first album on Rendezvous Girl and Who I Thought You Were. Apart from those two songs, the second half is kind of a drag. There's one that sounds like a really bad Siouxsie & The Banshees impression.

Chasing Shadows is so good. Her version of Need Ur Love by Charli XCX.

When I heard Chasing Shadows I thought it was the same sample as hard knock life

iLoveMakonnen collaborations sound so patronizing and are bad

Mods should change thread name to Santogold / Santigold

two years pass...

I genuinely never expected to care or even particularly think about her again but the new album is excellent.

will check it out but my first reaction when I saw this thread bumped was "oh yeah, her, lol"

Yeah, The Gold Fire Sessions is a lot of fun. It really took me by surprise. I hope people don't sleep on it.

What there’s a new record??
Mods please fix this thread title. It’s Santi
I liked maybe three tracks off 99 cents - apt title, why would one pay more for that record really.

doesn't it bother anyone that this thread title is misspelled? how does anyone even find it to revive it?

She was called Santogold initially right up until the release of her first album (called Santogold)

oh well that makes sense. because for a long time in my head I thought that was the name and then when I saw it wasn't I just attributed it to this thread.

Debut album still had the “Santogold” moniker, she changed it in 2009 because she was sued by “Santo Gold, a jeweller, filmmaker and infomercial-based salesman”

the point still stands that the thread title should be amended.

Anyone ever hear her pre-Santigold band Stiffed? I absolutely love the EP they put out Sex Sells which I reviewed at the time for Alternative Press.

It was produced by Darryl Jennifer of the Bad Brains and Chuck Treece played drums. Such a great record! Catchy and fun! It doesn't seem to be streaming anywhere (unlike the follow-up full-length which is very good but not great) but the CD can be bought for a pittance.

Wasn't the thread called Santogold/Santogold at some point, or did I imagine that? Why not call it that so it appears on all the searches?

I'm not a data scientist but I don't think it would make any difference

This is alright but after 99 Cents anything would seem halfway decent. Maybe it’s a grower

how the fuck am I going to find the Santogold thread now
