Santigold: Master Of My Make Believe
Buy! - (Downtown/Atlantic)
The New York-based artist’s second full-length tones down the New Wave exuberance of her 2008 self-titled debut album for a darker, more brooding and politically charged take on her eclectic, rhythm-driven blend of hip hop, dub, electro, synth-pop, reggae, dancehall and more, combining edgy synths, buzzing guitars, African percussion and a variety of dance-friendly beats with help from an impressive lineup of contributors including Diplo, Switch, A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip, TV On The Radio’s David Sitek, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O. and Nick Zinner, Portugese crew Buraka Som Sistema and other notables. 5/4/2012 - Don Yates
