Listen to “Disparate Youth” Here
Sometimes it takes music to strike a chord within. Go figure. With a history of being charted for spelling out what often really ought to be heard (not just listened), Santigold once again punctures the surface in a vortex of sounds, and with an elegance for singing: yo, pay attention. ‘A Life Worth Fighting For’ stands tall in her latest single Disparate Youth off her March ’12 album release, Master of My Make-Believe (Roc Nation). And as the subliminal beats stretch on, the song casts energy upon angst and urge perfecting melodic balance in heavy bass, killing it on the keys. Unframed, and taking a bow to her last release Big Mouth, Ms White throws her gold with a little more hiss and hustle to rock a dance floor and reap an audience. The Brooklynite goes large again and it’s barely March. If you don’t catch her at SXSW March 17, get into Coachella in April. And because you can’t get enough of Santigold, her omnipresence rolls into Sasquatch in May and the Governors Ball Music Festival (NYC) in June. Bam! Move over movies, it’s red carpet for music.
