Santigold is the best. She has been a 50 Cups favorite for too long. Probably one of the first artists to receive consistent love from the blogging world, I first heard Santigold in 2008 in a number of indie playlists. In the wake of other female leads like M.I.A. she blew onto everyone's radar with songs like LES Artists and Unstoppable and has remained there since. I have been meaning to post some of her new stuff from 99¢ (released in late January) but some how seemed to have slept on it. She continues to build on her alternative pop vibe. Her vocals, which are usually as unusual as they are catchy, consistently compliment the unique instrumentation of her music. The diversity she has brought with this new project continues to amaze me!
